My "Easter Chickie" in Polychromo Pencil with Colour Details

Can I Just say WOW!! The response from everyone over my "Easter Chickie" has been phenomenal! I never expected such a response from one first real pencil image. so THANK YOU too everyone who has commented and given such lovely comments and encouragements. 

Now I have had quite a few people asking me to list details of what colours I used and what paper so I thought I'd do a Blog Post just on this. Please note that no blending fluids of any kind were used in this colouring, and I did not use a blending stump. This is just layering of pencils. :)

Paper: Arches 300gsm Smooth Hotpress Watercolour paper
Pencils: Faber Castel Polychromo's
Chicks Body: 186, 187, 111, 109, 107, 106, 102, 103
Cheeks: 131, 189
Feet & Beak: 186, 187, 115
Basket:199, 280, 285, 179, 182, 183
Rabbit:274, 272, 101, 131, 189, 132

Well I hope that helps those who were asking what colours I used. :)
