I first bought colored pencils a year ago, probably cheap ones, and didn't like them I just got a new set and they are much easier to use, a creamier texture and richer look.
Yesterday I was trying to get Tony to tell me what color he saw a tree as (the trunk). Of course, he got all artistic on me and went on about primary colors, and purples and yadda, yadda, yadda. All I really wanted to know is if he saw brown or grey but whatever. Anyway, today I took my nice new colored pencils, and only using red, yellow and blue - did this little leaf. Needs to be bolder but not a bad start I think.
