Katie -- Class Project

Documenting my first attempt at the class project. Since I am new to colored pencils and I was unsure if this class was too advanced for me, I have not yet purchased the materials for the class. I am currently using a multipurpose textured art paper (50#) and my kids' colored pencils (Crayola brand). As a result, I am struggling since I lack the range of colors needed and also they do not blend as easily as I am sure the artist quality pencils do. I didn't want to invest in the colored pencils unless I really enjoyed the process. However, I am enjoying the class and working with colored pencils, so I plan to invest in the proper materials and give the class project another try in the future.
