Sketching a Pansy in Coloured Pencils

A few days ago I started working on a small sketch of a pansy in coloured pencils. Today I finished it and I thought I'd share some of the process here, on my blog. 


I don't actually have that many pics of the drawing process this time, but I did film the whole thing. :D Soo... there might be a YouTube video documenting it sometime in the future. :) :D Well, at least I hope it will: it depends on many factors (the quality of the footage, the editing process, all the other technical things that go into making a YouTube video which I am not that familiar with, since I haven't made any yet. :) (Well, I did, once, 5 years ago or so, but I have never actually uploaded it anywhere.)


Anyway. It's a tiny sketch (A6). I just wanted to see how the whole thing goes, especially with the filming part, so I decided to try something small first. Plus, I was thinking to use it as a hero image/focal point for one of my art journal spreads afterwards, so there was no point in doing a bigger drawing. (I might film that too. :D)

I used a combination of Faber Castell (Polychromos) and Derwent (Coloursoft, Studio, Lightfast and Procolour) coloured pencils, plus one of those colourless pencils used for blending and burnishing (Koh-I-Noor Hardmuth Polycolor 3800/ 0). And, of course, I did a graphite pencil sketch before everything else first. :)

And... that's about it. I will just leave you with the pics. And I will let you know whenever I finish that YouTube video I was talking about (if I ever finish it, lol :). Enjoy! 

P.S. I forgot to mention that I used this image by MrGajowy3 from Pixabay as a reference.
