Colored Pencil Drawing…

So I am currently working on a colored pencil drawing for a contest at The Hive, for that reason I can not show progression photos on my blog (it has to be a surprise).  I can assure everyone I have taken progression photos of this painstakingly slow process.  I also thought this drawing would enhance my (sorry looking) portfolio.  The piece is approximately 8″x10″ and I have been working on it for over a week and it is about half done.  I keep showing it to Jeff asking how am I doing, he looks at it like there wasn’t much progress made (after 2 hours of work).

This is not my first time working with colored pencils, I actually took a colored pencil class from a professional colored pencil artist in high school (her name escapes me – it has been over 15 years).  I loved the class, not the process and learned so much.  I also did some colored pencil drawings in college (the architecture classes will do that) and I can honestly say I have never really been a fan of the tedious process.  I will say I forgot how tedious the process was when I started this.  I now wish I would have done a a 5″ x 7″ drawing opposed to an 8″ x 10″ drawing.  Hopefully it will be done soon so I can do a complete post with pictures and my Hive entry.
