Well, Leslie D'Allesandro Hawes' colored pencil doesn't fit into this general process. Her drawings look good from the get-go. She is so organized and neat about her work. I am in awe at the process she uses. You will be amazed, too. She inspires me to try colored pencil. Pop over and take a look at this post of Leslie's with a work in progress, Autumn Hummocks. You can go from there to some other instruction on her site. Have fun!
Don't forget to come back here for another visit. :)
