This was originally done on a dare from a watercolorist who said "You can't paint water with pencils". What a load of nonsense it was. XD ^^ My colored pencil technique is very time-consuming (but then again, that might be everything I do... haha ^^; ) -- any one spot of this piece has between 4 and 7 layers of colors laid on with light pressure.
Well, I write and draw with very light pressure with most anything. XD The first time I got my tablet, the mouse was working fine, but the stylus won't do anything when I drew on, and I was convinced that the tablet was defective right out of the box. Turns out my hand pressure was so light I had to adjust the pressure/sensitivity reading setting on the program. lol
