This is from one of the colored pencils courses at The Virtual Instructor. I have some Berol Prismacolor pencils that are about 30 years old and I have tried and tried to use them and was a dismal failure. I just bought a complete set of new Prismacolor Premier and wow! They are wonderful. I guess my old ones were…well…OLD! LOL! I have a lot of practice to do to get good with these things, but I have some hope, now. This hummer is on black paper.

I have been wanting to use colored pencils, because, as much as I love pastels, it is a bit difficult storing them or framing them. I believe storing and framing colored pencil artwork is much easier.

I watched the videos several times and then turned them off, pulled up the reference photo, and went for it. I tried to match the teacher, but that is stressful. It is more fun for me, and easier, to learn how and then go off on my own. LOL! Matt is a great teacher and I appreciate him very much.

A flash of harmless lightning,
A mist of rainbow dyes,
The burnished sunbeams brightening,
From flower to flower he flies."
