Prismacolor Pencils WORKSHOP with Irina

Coloring with pencils has always intrigued me.  I of course remember coloring when I was a child.  Oh!!  I was so in love with my pencil collection!!  Now I feel like I am back to those happy times!!  
I took an online class with Marti and have learned a lot.  What I learned the most though is that I really need to do my own thing.  I tried many different coloring techniques to see what fits my style the best.  I had to try so many different papers to come up with my favorites.  I have a limited number of pencils, so I had to come up with my own color combinations. 

I am happy with my coloring now!!  And, I feel confident enough to teach you too!!
