A Grey Day

Well, not exactly grey, but definitely monochrome.

Before I start, there seems to be a Blogger problem with only being able to see one item in the Reading List - if you haven't already signed up for Bloglovin this might be the time to do - no such problems over there, and you can import all the blogs you are already following, as well as sign up for new ones.

Right, back to the monochrome.  I had a spare half an hour Sunday afternoon while I was waiting for dinner to cook and I started fiddling with the "cold grey" range of Polychromos pencils, and before I knew it I had coloured up my first true monochrome image.  It's a bit scruffy as I admit I was rushing it, but I rather like the end result so as very much a practice piece I am chuffed.  The next one I will take more time over.

This is May Day Birgitta - she is a Swiss Pixie from CC Designs
Polychromos pencils Cool Grey III, IV, V, VI and Black
Papers are the grey tones ones from the Dovecraft Back To Basics Monochrome collection

Hoping your day is filled with colour!

Hugs, Squirrel xx

Wow, I'm not brave enough to try the monochrome. Your pencil colouring is fab, I don't know what you mean about practice cos it looks perfect to me.

I'm a fan of monochrome and grays in general but I think I like the living technicolor version better. It is the flowers, they need to be bright and vivid.
