And Then There Were Three...

I have hundreds of pencils from a number of manufacturers, but lately I've been limiting myself to just three colors- Process Red, Non-Photo Blue, and Canary Yellow. White and Black control the value of each. Having just finished one last week, I am starting another. And I have the one after that picked out already! Primary Workshop is coming up on Saturday April 14th.

Debra Vacarro brought her high tech fancy-dancy projector to class on Wednesday to demonstrate how easy it helps her transfer her colored pencil project drawings as big as she likes.

Genius Idea!

I love innovative ideas and Jeff Butler has a simple solution for keeping his working pencils easily accessible. Jeff stands his pencils into a coffee can half full of dried rice to keep the palette he's working with readily available without rolling around the table. It has a handle for easy transport, too. Genius! ( I have noticed that Jeff has "downsized" to a smaller coffee can since this picture was taken)
