Colored Pencil Art

 FUN WITH COLORED PENCILS


The first in my new "Duct Tape" series.
I figured if they could make art
with a banana, I could use Peas!
I used Prismacolor pencils, 
on vellum bristol board, 
burnished with a colorless blender,

The Queen's Croquet

 The Queen's Croquet




While we were in Wonderland, it just seemed right to draw the Queen of Hearts. I played croquet when I was young, so I was always drawn to the Queens croquet - the flamingo mallet and the hedgehog balls! As for the look on the Queen's face, I can imagine her saying, "Off with their heads!"

This colored pencil painting is 20 x 16" on
300lb Bristol board paper.

Another chapter of
"Fun With Colored Pencils."
Nature not only offers gobs of colors,
it offers shapes , every shape imaginable.
Shapes you will encounter in all your drawings.
Ever have trouble drawing the ruffles in a dress or the folds of a tablecloth?
Practice with the fuchsia.
