Colored pencil portrait drawing
I love to draw in colored pencil! In the following galleries you’ll see some of my pencil drawings that are inspired by personalities. In my surreal colored pencil portraits I enjoy capturing the character of each person through expressive eyes. I often add a mythic landscape or symbols to create a story. I plan out my drawings around a specific color scheme, and know how it’s going to look like finished before I even begin drawing.
My colored pencil artwork has been featured in many publications, including several issues of Leisure Painter, Colored Pencil Student, Colored Pencil magazine, and Artists & Illustrators magazines, Women Artists 2004, 2013, 2018 calendars, two Colored Pencil treasures books, Draw portraits in colored pencil book, Flowers in art, Strokes of Genius 8 & Strokes of Genius 9 art books, as well as in Dick Blick’s national ad campaigns.
