Some of my Colored Pencil Works

Postby ShanaRoweArt » Fri Aug 15, 2014 9:07 pm

I have recently been falling in LOVE with colored pencils. Perfect combination between drawing and painting for me. Here are few of my pieces, they where all done from my own reference photos.

I like Colored Pencil (the wax) as well as Watercolor Pencils... sometimes I even mix them... I agree... it is a very cool in between from drawing and painting... These are all really great!! You are well on your way of mastering the medium ... are you using a grainy paper or surface??? Do you use white at all for blending/softening down the other colors ? I especially like the flower... really excellent job, captureing the detail while maintaining all the delicateness that is in a flower.
May your world be painted in the Brightest of colors!

Thank you! The paper I used for the Daisy and the Dew drops one is a white paper, it has some texture but not as much as the black paper I used for the one with the boy. The one with the boy was my first attempt on that paper, and I would have preferred for the paper to have a bit of a smoother grain where it is a portrait. Both papers are made by Canson. I do like to have a little texture as I feel it helps grip the wax, and I can do many layers. I am still experimenting with papers and other supports to find my favorite though. I do use white to burnish when I feel the piece calls for it!

Thank you Singular!! I am very much in touch with my inner child, and I find that comes through in my work. I guess it's all in the way I view the world. As a result most of my works tend to either have whimsical feel, or nostalgic feel to them.

Very nice drawings. And very nice colors
