Peaches and Cream by pbird12 Peaches and Cream by pbird12
I was invited to be part of a fantastic charity venture here on dA. Artist for a Cure is a collaboration of 12 artists who are creating a piece of work to be published in a 2013 calendar. All proceeds from the calendar will go towards Cancer Research. Something very close to my heart. To be able to contribute towards this coming years calendar has made me really happy :happybounce: All details of AFC can be found here - artistsforacure.deviantart.com…

EDIT: The 2013 Calendar is on sale now! You can buy it here knowing all of the proceeds go to cancer research www.lulu.com/shop/artists-for-…

I used a reference with very kind permission from the beautiful Muse =Muse1979

Materials:

Hot Pressed Watercolour Paper - About 8.5"x8"
FC Polychromos
White Acrylic
Graphite
Time: About 12 hours

Thank you for having a look
Paula :love:

this is beautiful pencil work.
on first look i would've guessed prisma colors, but perusing your materials list i noticed this
fc polycromos, which i have to confess, i had never heard of.
so, off to dick blick i went,...and now i know! faber castell!
but back to your work,...
it's very beautiful.
very soft, subtle and blended so very well.
impressive piece.

Thank you very much :aww: Polychromos are my absolute fave pencils, very different to prismas, which I don't like, they are oil based and harder, but fantastic!

Thank you too for the fave and watch, it's much appreciated :)

You are clearly a very masterful realistic artist. :) I'm amazed at how you got the fine lines of the hair.
