Rocks by the Sea
The reference photo for this piece was a greyscale photo. I changed the foreground and simplified it, and added the sea (there was only sky on the photo). What really had attracted my eye was the shape of the rocks and the textures, so I tried to recreate these with the coloured pencils.
Regarding the grass I not only used more or less all of my green pencils but also quite a few of my markers – the yellow green, the olive green and the lime green. Of course I had to be careful not to use a marker which was too dark. I found out that I could put green markers which are rather light on all kinds of green pencils, but not the other way round.
