Through experience I have found out that preplanning and preparation improved my finished results and saved time in the long run.

Young Trees finished
After tracing my drawing onto the precolored paper it was time to use the colored pencils. I used purple, violet and blue-violet with just a touch of yellow ocher. Once I got going it didn't take very long. For many drawings most of the work is preparing the composition, color decisions, the graphite pencil drawing and the background washes.
