Graveyard Challenge (in case you missed it)

John Singer Sargent, Graveyard in the Tyrol, 1914
In case you missed the announcement, I'm inviting everyone to paint a graveyard on location in a limited palette of colors. Here's the original blog post with all the details.

It's free to enter, and you can post your entries on the Facebook event page (where works are already appearing), and you can also informally share your work on Twitter or Instagram at the hashtag #graveyardpaintingchallenge.

Techinical question: what about colored pencils?
Say, I use gouache: white, cad yellow deep, ultramarine, burnt sienna.
Should I try to get the same hues for 4 colored pencils, or is it okay as long as the colors match with the mixes?

Fabio, yes, if you match up your water-soluble colored pencils with your paint colors, you'll still be in the same palette. Have fun!
