For Joey Challenge #82. Details on what I used under the photograph.
Faber Castell colored pencils in Pthalo Green, Green-Yellow, and White, with Prismacolor gold pencil, on a Renaissance tile.
I like the Faber Castell colors, but oh my, they are so much harder than Prismacolor pencils. For handling, I prefer the Prismacolors.
No other comments this evening. Having some supposedly minor eye surgery tomorrow and feeling skittish.

This is beautiful. I love the colouring. Now that is the sort of shading I admire. The tile edges look great too, how did you do that?

Thanks, Yorkshire T! I wish I could take credit for the burnt edges, but that is just one of the "effects" offered by my blog provider when I post a photo. The actual tile looks exactly like this except the edges are perfectly normal--no "crispy" effect around the tile at all. I opted to add the "burnt edge effect" when I posted the pic. I only wish I knew how to do this in real life without burning up the tile. LOL.

<i>Nice tile. I also like the "burnt" edges. Wish I could find a way to do that.</i>

ooh, that colored one is so pretty. The palette is scrumptious, the shading impeccable. Very nice! I'm with you on colored pencil...nothing like prisma...
