I thought it was fitting that since I grew up in Chicago that I draw the Chicago River dyed green for St. Patty's Day. I sketched it up in pencil first then went over it with my new Sharpie pen (which I love by the way!) and for the thicker black lines my Staedtler Lumocolor pen. I colored in the green river with several different shades of green with my Prismacolor colored pencils.
I stopped at Hobby Lobby again today to get the Prismacolor Turquoise pencils (I've heard they're pretty good for sketching) but I haven't used them yet. I was only going for those, but you know how it is. lol. I ended up with some new watercolor brushes (on sale for 50% off!) and another pastel paper pad in a larger size. So I have tons of new supplies to play with and a whole day off of work!
