Colored Pencil Art Drawing : grocery bags 2

Work in Progress Work in Progress

The whirlwind of the show has passed and the  pencil pot has been replenished and it is so good to be back working on this piece again.

The texture of the cold press paper is so lovely for the paper bags, but it is much more delicate to work with. The paper does not hold the pencil as well my regular hot press paper, making it very easy to smudge.

I am trying to use this to my advantage in some places by creating delicate blends of color in the highlight areas, but I have to be much more careful than usual, especially with the shadows.
