So much easier to take care of and it should also mean the vacuum will last longer because its not sucking up giant balls of hair :p Its shorter in the back, looks longer in the photo actually.
I added another project to the monthly sketch blog. I thought there was just too much of a wait between projects and it gives people that might have missed the first project a chance at the second one.
For this project the photo was provided by Chrissy. Decided to use coloured pencils, but its the ones that you can wet after if you like. I love them :) All the look of a watercolour, but half the work. Yes thats being lazy, but why spend lots of time on something if you don't have to?
The pencils dry. Went down smooth, the lighter colours seemed to need a few extra layers to show up, but they all blended well together. (this is a photo)
And the finished scan. Nice bright colours that blended well when wet but were easy to control. Next time I use them though, I need to put down a bit more of the pencils to get a better saturation of colours on the paper.
