Crushed Again

Some weeks ago I visited the "Crushed Cellars" winery where I did a rather messy ink drawing of the vines and road in their front vineyard, along with two of the chickens who wander around the property. My first colorizing for this drawing was in Photoshop but I always intended to properly color the image in colored pencils. I did this a few days ago and here it is. In this case I like my colored pencils better than the richer colors of Photoshop. The pencils have "leads" of wax and you can blend the colors on the page as if it were a harder species of oil pastel. So you can be Crushed again with softer color.

Prismacolor, Derwent, and many many other makes of colored pencil from my extensive studio set, September 2015.

You know these are lovely but you really should try and finish one once in a while. I mean the color parts are great but then you go and leave part of it just white or penciled
