Well it's winter in the Southern Hemisphere and I have not been painting much, so I decided to try some colored pencil Art for a change. I am new to this medium but have picked up some helpful tips on the web. I bought myself a set of Polychromos by Faber-Castell, let me just mention that these pencils are oil based and of superb quality, for layering. I used mix-media paper 140 lb by Canson.
The Green Mamba is a common snake found in Southern Africa, usually in trees, seldom found on the ground. The venom is dangerously neurotoxic, similar to the Black Mamba but not as potent.
This is one of Southern Africa's most common butterfly, found in gardens.
