The paper really provided this piece with a nice soft texture, which I liked. A little hard to blend the color pencils with the colorless blender markers on this particular paper though, worked great of course with the watercolor pencils. 

Title: Autumn Breeze

Medium: Color Pencil and Watercolor Pencil

Paper: Strathmore Aquarius II watercolor paper

Size: 12.75" x 8.75"

About: This piece was inspired by my love for autumn. I love this time of year, the leaves changing and falling, harvest time, pumpkins, the spices swirling in the air, the crisp cold foggy mornings.

Note* The scan did not pick up the true background colors. It's more of a light sage green mixed with powder blue and light cool grey.

Part of my seasonal series.

Beautiful portrait. I love the colors in her blouse and skin. I can tell you used several layers of colors. Wonderful shading and blending. Outstanding job! Thanks for sharing.

So pretty! :heart: I have a question when you color do you use circular motions or do you use up and down/straight motions. Because with your art I see that the colors look really soft and it looks like the white of the paper is visable.

Thank you! I usually use vertical strokes. Depending on the subject matter, sometimes I will use a circular motion. Haven't used the circulism technique in a long time though. Sometimes I will use a blender marker to cover up my strokes, but with this type of watercolor paper, it really doesn't work very well on it.
