A Change in Direction

I have been wanting to do a painting (fairly large) of a donkey and fishermen from my village. I have pretty much given up painting with water colors, because I like to do very detailed work and my hand is not steady enough when using a brush any more. So I decided to do an ATC of a donkey's head with Prisma Colors and it came out quite well. But to do a painting , say 8x10, seemed a large space to fill with colored pencils. Then I had the brainwave of combining the two media. Now I am about two thirds of the way through and when I have finished it, which may take a week, I will publish it on my Flamblog, (see side bar for link) where I will explain more of what I did. In the meantime here is Dombey the Donkey.
