Amaryllis Minerva I

This coloured pencil drawing is the first finished work in a series of 3 works of this subject I am currently working on.

I created the drawing by tracing down the composition using light coloured pencils. I then added an underpainting in pastel pencils before working on the drawing in coloured pencils. The pastel pencil underpainting helps to establish the colours of the subject without using too many layers of coloured pencils. This method also helps to reduce the time it takes to create the drawing.

Below is Amaryllis Minerva II. created in the same way.
