Winter Blue


I wanted a little change in theme as I have been making a lot of Autumn inspired pieces lately.
The drawing is done with a mix of markers, colour pencils and soft pastels.
I am testing my new Caran d'Ache Pastel Pencils a lot lately.

All new Caran d'Ache Pastel Pencils

Last week I made a fantastic discovery - the local art shop Creas has new pastels available.
I'm a big fan of Caran d'Ache pencils, I find them amazing. I use both their Graftwood graphite pencils as well as Supracolor pencils. I am yet to find a product from them I don't like.

These new pastels are amazing. They are extremely creamy and nice to work with. The different colours blends in nicely and the colours actually stick to the paper when applying new layers. It's a problem I've often had before; layers disappearing a bit when adding more layers on top. These Caran d'Ache pastels aren't so bad at this, which makes them easier to work with.
Another big plus with these pastels are the fact they are lightfast and the tones you can get are amazing. I love the golden matte tones, especially the dusty lilac/purple, Aubergine, and the neutral peach/brown tones.
You can see the colour palette here:

All in all I am very happy with these pastels and highly recommend them.

This was my first drawings using the new pastels, using only those.

Vacation mode

I am still a bit absent at my blog, which you can tell if you are still visiting. My life been kind of up and down for a while and I find it hard to find the time and inspiration to really blog with thought.

Summer finally arrived here late July and with that came the headaches I summer from through out mid summer. It's been pretty bad this year for me and I've spend most days with a headache unfortunately. It is why I look forward to Autumn and already am in the Autumn mood.
A few drawings from past weeks:
This week I got some new pastel pencils and I can't wait to show you my review of them one of the upcoming days!:)
