I'm not going to comment on this post as you're probably sick of me already ... how many ways are there to say how much I love all your drawings? So please ignore this while I go take a second and third look and then grab a thesaurus to look up brilliant, gorgeous, etc ...

Andrea- What combination of color pencils did you use on this wallet. It is so vivid! I think there is normally only one gold pencil in the box....but it seems though you have several shades. Or are they browns and yellows? Please tell.

Thank you!

I'm not really very fond of this one. I like the chain and France, you're right I enjoyed drawing that. I think it looks a lot better close up.

Suzanne, here goes this is what I used (in order...ish); yellow and orange ballpoint, sanguine Pitt pen, gold and bronze metallic gel pens, brown Pitt pen, gold and bronze pencils! Ha! I see it as some kind of learning process, I'm always pushing these tools to see what results I can get out of them. Sometimes surprising, sometimes disappointing - but I guess always worthwhile.

Cheers guys!

I can't believe you do these with simple pens. It just glows!
