La vie en Rose

Good evening!

Just going to make a quick artsy post tonight~

Great news! I've got some new colour pencils! I picked them up a while ago when I was out and about with the missus. She suggested that we could go to the art store and see if we could find light blue pencils. Somehow it didn't occur to me that people might actually sell individual pencils, albeit at a slightly inflated price... Silly me!

Bad(ish) news: Once you move onto colour pencils, it never seems like you'll ever have enough colours. But the exhilarating feeling keeps you going, so you have to indulge in the addiction and acquire more colours...

Oh I kid. It's not as bad as it sounds. I've got light blue colour pencils now, so I think my hunger will be sated for quite some time. Although, I couldn't help but pick up a few more colours while I was there. You got me this time Derwent...

Turquoise Blue, Sky Blue, Sepia, Chartreuse and Burnt Rose

Anyway! I've been working on a quick little drawing for someone. It'll only take a week or so, if all goes well. I probably won't post up the final result as it is a personal gift, but I suppose it wouldn't be too much to show the original image as a point of comparison.



  1. Hooray for more colours! But why just stop there? How about getting them all? :D

  2. Why are you encouraging me??? It costs so much to get more... Must resist temptation D:
