Decided to draw a picture of our horse Faith, using color pencils and a burnishing technique.  It took about 3 hours to complete.  It was very difficult and time consuming, but it was relaxing.  I was inspired to use the burnishing technique by another artist named Heather Rooney.  If you have a moment you should google her and check out one of her drawing videos.  She is very talented and each one of her portraits looks extremely real and takes about 22 hours to draw.

I will be trying this technique more often, its going to take a lot of practice.

As a bonus, I have included a youtube video of me drawing Faith.  It is a time lapse to show you how I was drawing and burnishing her.

Materials Used:

  • Prismacolor Pencils
  • 300 series drawing paper
