Coloured Pencil Swan Picture

swan

I started this on Saturday and completed it this evening.

It’s a picture of a young swan, hence all the grey and different tones on it.

It was created using Polychromos pencils from Faber-Castell and Luminance pencils from Caran D’ache.  The paper I did this on was Daler Rowney Aquafine aquarelle artists watercolour  A4 hot pressed.

The reference photo is once again from Paint my photo, and actually from the same photographer as my Spaniel watercolour picture.  A link to that is here 

I did have a slight issue once I’d completed this picture, as I’d taped down the edges with masking tape, which is never normally a problem, but this time it stuck too much and ripped a bit of the paper,  so it’s not the full A4 that it would have been.  Thankfully I think I saved it well enough.
