I have worked on this for 2 more days and I am pleased with the progress. I have used mainly Derwent Artist pencils and some Polychromos where I didn't have the right colour. It is on Fisher 400 sanded paper and it eats pencils like a very hungry Golden Retriever! It has been good to experiment with colour blending and smoothing without using a brush. Dark colours first and light colours on top with some glazing using a light touch and the side of the pencil. I'm hoping to get it finished before starting jury service next week.
