A long time ago, longer than I care to fess up to, my wife gave me a set of colored pencils thinking I might want to incorporate some color into my pen and ink drawings. Gee, the last time I used color was with crayons in my coloring book when I was a little guy.
The pencils sat for years, untouched and hardly ever looked at and they were pretty to look at too.
Recently I mustered up the courage to venture into uncharted territory for me and try out the colored pencil set my wife gave to me as a gift.
I'll have to admit, it came out better than I thought it would, not knowing what I was doing. I'll confess that I was going off an image from a cocktail napkin. The black portions are ink, not pencil.
Will I do color again? Maybe...probably, but I won't wait 30 years to do so the next time.
