Autumn Lanterns 8.5" x 11" Prismacolor and Odorless mineral spirits on strathmore colored pencil paper.
Reference photo used by permission: Sally Robertson

Another colored pencil magazine challenge.
I played around with the image and made the colors more vibrant from the original.
I've been using Prismacolors which are so creamy, and I can see why people use a harder pencil to get a sharper line. The difficulty with this drawing was having all of that dark pencil dust land on the lighter parts and having to brush it away, so that it didnt get worked into the lighter areas.

You fool me EVERY TIME! At first glance I thought "Ooh, a lantern craft!" before realizing this is an illustration. You are incredible at this.

ME TOO!  I didn't realize it was an illustration, and not a photograph until I clicked on it and looked at it much closer.  Beautiful work.
