So, Daddy's Birthday on the 12th was kind of rough for me. And the 13th was not a lot better. Advice from my friends seemed the best so I escaped into my Arts. I love pencil, or graphite, how it looks and all the tones and marks it can make. I started experimenting with Conte Crayons.
The first one was done with just one color.
This second one I used more of the colors in my little six-crayon tin.
They are like pastels, but have a little bit of oil in them. I really like using them a lot more than I expected I would.
