This was a challenge over on wetcanvas.com in the colored pencil category (April's challenge).
So, yeah, colored pencil on bristol. I spent a lot of time on this one and really enjoyed it. Obviously I didn't mask or tape off the borders and didn't finish the left side, but I like the finished product. One thing that was different about this that I did was wipe it all down in a swirling motion with a cotton pad. That leaves a nice sheen. (I did that instead of blending it out with a colorless blender.)
