Returning to penciling

This is my newest colored pencil work that I'm going to admit that I've been working on since before the December holidays. Its been on-and-off so now I am ready to finish so I am trying to work on this piece every day, even if its one or two shells. The size is 14x14" and the surface is Rtistx board. I am pulling out my stashes of colored pencils and finding that I like working with Lyra Rembrandt and Polychromos pencils on this surface because of their hardness on this textured surface. The white surface is helping my colors to glow and the layering is enjoyable but very time consuming. My process is to work each shell a little bit and then move on. Once I finish all the shells and rocks, I will work on unifying the piece with changes in color and value.

Kendra, this piece looks like it is coming along very nicely. Your color scheme is beautiful. You are going to end up with a nice series with all the shell pieces. Which reminds me - congratulations on your shell piece that was accepted into Explore This! How do you like working on the RisTix board? Which one is it you are using?
