I first started playing with colour pencils in 2013, but only had a limited range of colour pencils to use. Over the next couple of years I received a few different types of colour pencils which I enjoyed experimenting with. I started officially offering colour pencil drawings in 2015/16 after I got my prismacolor pencils.
Colour pencil portraits usually take around 20 hours to complete but have taken up to 40 hours! Unlike graphite pencils there is a much wider range of colours to use, some that you wouldnt expect to see. Depending on the piece I can have up to 40 different colours and shades in a portrait.
You can view some examples of my colour pencil pieces below. They are completed using prismacolor, coloursoft and drawing pencils.
