Mountain Sketch in Progress

It has been a week since I began this drawing. However, Wednesday is the only day that I really have to sit down and truly give it time to develop.


Now that I have finished a very hefty amount of editing on my debut novel, Nexus Gate 4037: The Animal, I have a bit more time on my hands and I plan to use it building this piece.

I have taken some liberties in how many peeks and valleys are in my drawing versus the original image. Really, I am more interested in learning how to build color with color pencil than anything. I am still in the layering stages, applying different colors on top of the others in order to achieve the tone that I am looking for. This is a practice in patience as well as growth.

Stay tuned for more as she grows!

    1. 😀 thank you! I am learning as I go. Color pencil was never something that I really explored. Oil paint and line drawing was always my thing. But I, again, am enjoying the delayed gratification of it all. Anything good will often take a good amount of time…I think I need to write that down lol

      1. It’s a good motto? Is that the word? Maybe.
        I always think how painting and writing are different, yet the same in some ways. Through drafting we build up layers and create a full picture from a skeleton. That’s how I look at it, anyway. 🙂
