    • Hi Sharon,

      Thanks for thinking of us! The hurricane turned out to sea and moved away from us. We ended up getting quite a bit of rain and little wind, but a much better situation than what the forecasters were predicting. I should have part 2 of the series, recorded on the 9th, up later this evening or tomorrow morning. Thanks again!

    • Hi Don,

      I have a set of 72 Prismacolor Premier pencils. With some mediums, you can get away with just a few colors including the primaries, but with colored pencils, the more colors you have – the better. Colors can be created or mixed by layering, but this process is far from perfect. But if you have more colors to choose from when layering, it makes it easier to match colors or at least get them close.
