This lovely peacock was completed using only 4 different blues -colored pencils- on a small piece of black Stonehenge paper. I used a white gel pen for all those white highlights.
Took me about 30 minutes for this little guy. Fun exercise.
A fairly large piece of Stonehenge Black- 16"x20".
Total time to complete was mmaaayyybbeee hour and a half.

Yea. I forgot to take a decent picture first.
This lovely black swan was the most complicated and the most fun and satisfying to complete.
I used the black of the paper for any black part of the swan- the feathers were minimal coloring using
various purples and blues but paying careful attention as to how the light hit them.
For the background I used 3 pencils plus white, sort of an abstract sunset.
It took 2 sessions of a couple hours each to complete- this is fairly large- 16"x20".
