Koh-I-Noor Woodless pencils and Acrylics

Below is an impromptu quick pencil sketch using Koh-I-Noor colored woodless pencils.  These are an excellent medium for artists en plein air or those who enjoy quick in the moment sketches.  The pencils work best on a smooth surface paper rather than rough.  Here I drew on the textured side of Strathmore 140 lb. watercolor paper, but will use the smooth side on the next try.

Acrylics (Liqutex student grade)

In this image, I simply placed notes of color on paper from a painting.  The purpose of this exercise was to understand the shift in value, temperature, color placement and color mixing.
