Coloured pencil

Today i am going to be talking to you about one of my favorite mediums, the coloured pencil, this medium has come along way in the last 50 years it was once was an agonizing, ill achieving tool, which lacked any definition in pigment but what it did have and what it still has is a guarantee in accuracy you can not get in any other coloured medium, it also was and still is the medium that many of is encounter first in life and are more likely to use most in our school life, well it was for me at least, however most of the time it can seem close to useless if you  wish to achieve any form of realism or abstract look to your work.

However most of the time this is down to the colouered pencil its self and do not feel disheartened if you browse on the internet and see almost photo like colour pencils which take you a few seconds to realize that they are in fact drawings, i am not saying by any means that it is easy if you have the right tool, because it isn't, but what i would tell you is that for many this may be the reason for your struggle, a company i advice is Derwent they are affordable and they offer other alternatives to my much preferred Derwent Artist pencils  http://www.pencils.co.uk/product.aspx?mid=722
