Being a curious artist or should that be an impatient one I quickly unpacked the Derwent coloured pencils that arrived by post and put a bit of colour on some Colourfix paper, which you see in this post.
Katherine from Making a Mark kindly commented to my post called Rocks in my Head. It reminds me I do have a lot to learn about this medium that I have never used since I was a child. Of cause I never had professional colour pencils back then but gee 'colouring in' did pass many pleasurable hours as a child.
Katherine mentions in her comment that she love FC Polychromos and Lyra Rembrandt on Arches HP. I can see my coloured pencil and paper shopping list will be growing longer as I learn from accomplished coloured pencil artists that are sprinkled throughout the internet.
All that is wrong with new art material coming into the studio is the lack of time to experiment with them. I managed to find a supplier for drafting film that has a coating on both sides for the pencil to adhere too. The drafting film is staying packed away so that it does not become damaged until I get serious about putting time aside to work with it. If you are interested in drafting film yourself I purchased mine from Premier Art Supplies in Adelaide.
