  4. My average CP painting is about 15 to 20 hrs. I just got the Icarus Board, about a month ago, and it is helping me do my art faster. I do at least 5 layers and up to 10 on each piece, so it takes me more time, but I love it.

  5. It depends on the size of the piece. I'm going to say 10 to 40 hours.

  6. I would say an average of 17 hours for an 11x14 piece.

  7. I'm in my infancy, so 1-3 hours. The Kingfisher I'm working on is going to take much longer. It's my first attempt at realism :)

  8. A complicated piece could take up to 30 hrs.

  9. Depending on the size, I usually spend 5 hours on up to at least 30. That goes for graphite as well as colored pencil. I don't usually work larger than 16x20".

  10. I usually spend around 3 to 5 hours for graphite work in A4 size, but I do much slower on doing colored pencils works. It might be around 10 hours for a simple piece.

  11. Depending on the subject matter and the size, I spend anywhere from 6 to 40 hours on my colored pencil art. ~Lidia Penczar~

  12. It all depends on the complexity and size of the piece. A small 4 x 6 may take only 30 minutes, while a 16 x 20 ( or larger) may take as much as 80 hrs. I have cut the time down a bit as of late, as I have begun doing mixed media with CP. Gouache or Watercolors and CP are awesome together.

  13. Usually a week or more. Working with colored pencil alone is a long process...

  14. It depends on the size and complexity. For 5"x7", about 12 hours. For 15"x20", about 80 hours. I wish that meant I finish the latter in two calendar weeks, but it usually is more like five weeks!

    Depending on the size of picture between 6 and 12 hours.

  16. A few hours total broken up over the course of many weeks. I tend to be a procrastinator and over-thinker. If I drew more, I'd be more productive. =)

  17. I take my time to finish my drawings, last drawing was a composition of several tins but i did find the right graphit colourpencil.

  19. I'm just learning colored pencil, but I would say it takes as long as it takes for me to be happy with it?

  20. hooray...it finally worked! ive been trying to log in all day.....okay...what was the question again? :)
    just kidding...i guess it depends on the size of the piece and how detailed it is...but i suppose about a week or two, depending on how much time is dedicated to the piece each day. With a 5 year old, it usually takes me longer than it should :)

  21. I seem to drag it out and agonize over it for at least a week or more. Then again, I have some 'issue' with starting many and finishing few.

  24. I usually work anywhere from 2 to 4 hours a day. According to the size and how detailed the piece is, it takes about a month (3 to 4 weeks).

  25. Wow, that is a tough one. Time passes without much notice when I am working on a piece. Maybe 20-80 hours depending on the size and detail.

  26. Its different dwpwnding on the subject, type Etc. I tend to overwork a piece because I never "think" it is done.
