Wings! ..

I'm not usually in the habit of putting wings on my people .. but this one was just asking for them. lol .. It's a small pencil drawing done with a brown Lyra coloured pencil. I have a few of these pencils - they are large fat ones and I usually keep them for drawing on canvas. They are very smooth to work with as they have either wax or oil in them. This was done on Canson pastel paper - smooth side.

I seem to pick up new things from you all the time. I've never heard of lyra pencils. Now I'm got to try one.

This is beautifully rendered. I love the wings, gives a fragility to the figure it otherwise may not have. Lyra colored pencils are great aren't they!

Hi Fay, The Lyra pencils are made in Germany. They are good for drawing on canvas because of the thick lead which seems to skim over the tooth of the canvas rather than sinking into it like the thinner pencils do.

Michael .. Thanks for your comments. Love the smooth feel of the pencils :)
