New Pencils

Ok, so I have dozens, and dozens of pencils (should really count them one day), but one can never have too many :p I haven't used Polychromos' before and since I was ordering mat board, ordered some pencils in colours I would use. Will be curious to see how I like them and what surfaces work the best (yes I am an art geek, why do you ask? :p)

And this is an older piece that needs a name. I have no ideas what to name it, but candy#3 doesn't sound right and I need a title to fill out a form. Any ideas?

Wow. I had more time to scroll through your blogs and "loved" many of the flickr favourites. There are some absolutely stunning photos--loved the leaves, the flowers, the castles. I am so enjoying posting pictures and adding a quickly written hiaku to most of them. It is very satisfying to do something creative.

Theres nothing better (or more addictive) than new art supplies!

I could give any number of pencils a home. Love that sketch of sweeties. For a moment I thought they were real.

Very striking - lovely work

I'm pants at picking titles!

Oh man, now I want to go shopping really really bad. Scrumptious pencils. The 'candy #3' looks great-submission form??? I suck at titles so you are on your own. Study#__ is just fine too if nothing better comes to mind.

After my husband bought the full set of Prisma pencils for me...I'm not allowed to buy any :( But over a hundred is a lot...

Hmmm...what about, 'Sugar Rush', or 'Sweet Niblets'. THey do look good enough to eat :)

OMG - the candy are AMAZING!!! The title that came to me was "Escape".

I have no skill with CP, so I don't envy the stash, but, they sure look nice!

Yummy! Nice painting.

Polychromos are my favourite pencils. They last longer too for some reason than the Prismacolor pencils even though I use them the same. Maybe their denser in the amount of pigment in the pencil or something.

Polychromo's are one of my faves too :) Especially for animal fur
Nice candy :)

Jennifer Rose said...

I think it's an excellent choice to submit. Good luck, yep, they are always a long shot but you gotta go for it.
