FUN WITH COLORED PENCILS



This collage is very industrious with napkins,
coffee filters, antique buttons, lots of glue and acrylic paint ~ and 
a colored pencil bunny that was thought
 to be cut from a magazine.

FUN WITH COLORED PENCILS

More collage and colored pencil drawings.
Most people expect collages to be made from photos
 cut out of magazines or books. That is the only drawback of using 
your own illustrations, you need to explain your process and claim the illustrations as your own original art.

FUN WITH COLORED PENCILS


Colored Pencils and Collage.
These flamingos, so twisted and 
wrapped around each other.
The collage they are mounted to needed to be simple, 
so as not to compete with the 
colored pencil flamingos.

FUN WIL COLORED PENCILS

I love collage. Scissors and glue. 
Takes you back to your childhood.
Using my own colored pencil drawings in my collages 
adds another dimension to the work.

FUN WITH COLORED PENCILS



Watercolor is so popular, it makes a great base for 
your colored pencil paintings. 
You can use the traditional pan or tube 
watercolors or you could try water soluble colored pencils.
Either way, when you finish with colored pencils, 
the results are amazing.

FUN WITH COLORED PENCILS



Here is the title page of my self-published book
"Fun With Colored Pencils".
This book is now available on Amazon.com. In this book 
I am sharing the basic techniques of colored pencil art, 
the techniques that took me years to find. My intention is 
not to instruct but rather to inspire. I am also sharing my
 own colored pencil art in the hopes of encouraging 
more artists to try this medium.

Thanks to a grant from the 
Cultural Alliance of  York,
I was able to create and publish this book.
