Drug out the colored pencils

I have decided I really like colored pencils but don't know how to use them so a friend blogger suggested I try a CD class.....so I ordered "The Colored Pencil getting started right" by janie Gildow and it came today.  I have listened to about half of it and very excited about getting started.........but first you have to get all the "beforehand" information...you know pencils, paper, etc....so I am on my way........wings are flapping ..........here I GO........

This is a picture I did last night.  I am going to use it as a Before and then I will do an After........


Hugs and Blessings,
Nancy
