Throughout the years, I’ve tended to prefer more subdued colored palettes to bright ones. However, since discovering colored pencils last March, that has changed. I am finding with each piece I do my use of bright colors gets ever more amped up. Now I’m working on a tripytch in colored pencils and have discovered after doing this sketch and color study that I am pretty much using the entire spectrum of the rainbow (along with incorporating a literal rainbow):
Is this too much? I don’t know, maybe. But I’m so excited. I started the final of this a couple nights ago and I hope I can pull the colors off. I guess I will see.
