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.
