Mountain Lion / Reflections Series WIP 02


Hi All,

Sorry I haven't posted an update before this. As Conventions Director of the Colored Pencil Society I have been really busy lately. We are finishing up all the final details of the Convention and I haven't had a lot of time for art. Hopefully after the end of the month I'll be able to spend more time on this piece. Even though we have been busy I always love seeing everyone at the convention and really really look forward to it. I hope to see many of you there this month.

I am almost done working on the mountain lion and will start the water and reflection of the mountain lion very soon. I'm enjoying working on this piece and hope it comes out as I imagine it should be. We as artists always seem to have a vision but often times the piece just doesn't come together as we envisioned. I have decided on a title for this piece.... I think I will call it "Wild Reflections". I want to thank all of you for your title recommendations I really like some of them. I think I will definitely use them in the series pieces to come after this one.

The image above is the full artwork so you can see I haven't gotten a lot done at this point. The one below is a close up of the mountain lion. If you should have any questions at all let me know. Don't forget...... Keep Scribbling!!!

  1. Hi Gemma! I can't wait to see this piece finished! Can you tell me what type of colored pencils you use on the suede?

  2. Hi Colette!

    I use several types of colored pencil on the suede. This piece is done predominantly in Prismacolor and Derwent's Colorsoft.

    I also plan on adding some Pastel on this piece when I do the background. I haven't tried that before so we see how it comes out.

    Thanks so much!
