My entry for Explore This!


I titled this "Reaching Out to the Other Side". It's a combination of Prismacolor and graphite. Much to my surprise I actually had fun doing this. I thought it would be a lot harder than it was. Happily I learned they could be compatible. Not to say I didn't run into problems but I figured out how to make the two work together pretty quickly.

Beautiful Linda! Of course I expect nothing less ;). You have combined these two mediums with such grace and drama, tis a work to behold!

Yet, it has "you" written all over it.

Good luck with your entry dear!

So amazing Linda! The hints of color throughout the lace pull the whole piece together. I am in awe!
Good luck!

Stunning! Not easy to do either. A masterful piece.

beautiful piece & great composition! Thanks for sharing the fact that graphite & color pencil can work happily together--I've been telling my students not to use them together, but now I can say "yes"!

Linda said...

I wouldn't go so far as to say graphite and colored pencil are compatible and I don't use them together however if you use graphite in one place and colored pencil in another as I did they can work together.
