"Crown of Love," stage 1
Here is the first stage of a colored pencil piece. It uses water soluble colored pencils, which turn brilliant when water is applied. In stage 2, the complementary colors will go on top of this brightness, creating a calmer more subdued color scheme, but with the bright under glow of these colors.
