Untitled



I had designed this piece as a sketch some time ago then started it as a watercolour which got laid aside.  I rediscovered it the other day and thought I'd try my hand at it again, this time in coloured pencil.  I had considered using this piece as a Christmas card but its not very seasonal, so I don't think it will make the cut.  However, if it turns out, it can, like all of my work, be used as a note card.

I transferred the sketch onto some Stonehenge paper today and cocooned myself on the sofa under a blanket with the wood stove going and worked on it to this point. 


Size?  Its about 8 or 9 inches in diameter and I'm using Prismacolour pencils.  A name for the piece hasn't come to me yet.  Sometimes the name is there before I even start a piece, or comes partially through the drawing.  This time - nothing.   All suggestions are welcome.

Fishy-go-round? :)

This is beautiful so far. Very yin and yang. That's too obvious, I know.

Ha! Cute Rhonda.

Thanks Paula. I always seem to want to put fish in circles. That must say something about me...

Very Piscean... Your use of the coloured pencils is beautiful. Do you use an electric pencil sharpener?

It is rather, I think I must be influenced by it as I am Pisces. And yes, I do use an electric pencil sharpener. They give beautifully sharp points and effortlessly.
