Pebbles in a bowl

What made me want to paint rock pebbles?

Funny, when you see it at a glance, they just look so dull and grey, but soak them in water, you see their real colours.
It’s a challenge for me to get the right colour using colour pencils as they are not like water or oil paint where you can blend them before you paint it.

You see, on  a black paper it’s hard to use black. In order to make the black popped out, I’ve used ‘ink blue’ as base then only I use the black or the green.

It was fun watching the colour comes to life. I’m very very satisfied with this painting as this is my 1st on this subject. More to come, on pebbles, with more varieties of colours.
