My next coloured pencils drawing will be a flying pelican. In order to get the colours right I thought it might be sensible to do some colour studies – especially in order to get the proper values. As everybody knows, pelicans are pink, but when I took a closer look at the reference photo I noticed that a lot of other colours were in it, too.
There is a bit of difference between the colours on the paper (it is sketchpad paper, 115 g on the square meter) and the colours here on the scanned image. They look a bit more intensive and stronger here on the screen.
