In my younger days I loved the cartoon character Speedy Gonzales, the fastest mouse in Mexico! He would zip and dart everywhere. I loved his Mexican accent too.
These days I’m certainly not “speedy”, but I can work quick if I push myself.
On Monday afternoon I decided to challenge myself and see how fast I could draw.
Armed with a piece of (30 x 20cm) Colourfix paper and a selection of Derwent Coloursoft pencils away I went!
Today’s featured drawing took a total of 90 minutes to complete.
It was an interesting challenge. I was probably more interested in the ability of the Coloursoft pencils than my speed.
I loved the ease of application of these pencils and their strong colours. I will feature them along with Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils at my next workshop in Latrobe on July 7th.
