The Colored Pencil ENTHUSIAST

I love colored pencils.

I love them more than paint.

Yes - they are slow - very slow - but for me, it's a form of meditation. It's calming and reflective.

Just like watercolors, my colored pencils are applied in layers, many layers to build up to the color I want.

Some people say colored pencils are just "coloring" = that's true if you only apply one layer.

But when you use many layers - then it's painting.
