As promised (sort of) I took up and did a sketch using the old colored pencils today. And just as I thought, the novelty wore off fairly quickly. About half way through I found myself thinking, “This would be so much more powerful if I did this up in oils”. 'Half way through' being only about 25 minutes mind you.
So until further notice, I will only work with colored pencils to augment certain pencil sketchs, or to play around with my logo or some other one dimensional design.
I’m way too in love with oils to continue this sort of thing.
