This project was the most challenging project I have ever done. It is a sentimental piece because of the setting and subject matter but it was not easy. I chose to use colored pencils because of all of the amazing colors and textures. It was very challenging to acheive the colors in the water and in the rocks. I'm still not satisfied with the bottom right of the water.
If I were to do this over again, I would paint it. It would have been a lot easier to mix the unusual colors with paint rather than layering it with pencils. The water and sky would have appeared smoother as well and I could have acheived a really cool texture on the rocks.
