Will you share it with us?

Good luck.
thanks!

I hadn't thought of erasing as I went along. Good tip!

I certainly will share. Constructive feedback makes learning faster.

erasing the graphite sketch?

I'm just starting into coloured pencils. I have my lightly-pencilled (HB or B) sketch and I'm applying colour from pencils (derwent).

I'm wondering how you deal with the sketch after applying the colour. Leaving it must be one option but if I wanted to remove it, how do you do that without affecting the coloured pencil?

thanks!
