I love to draw in colored pencil! In the following galleries you’ll see some of my pencil drawings that are inspired by moving personalities. In my surreal colored pencil portraits I enjoy capturing the character of each person through expressive eyes. I often add landscapes and symbols around the portrait to create a story. I plan out the drawings around a specific color scheme, and know how it’s going to look like finished before I even start. The realistic colored pencil drawings become my notes on human condition.
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 and 2013 calendars, in two CP 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.
I usually draw on colored paper using professional, lightfast colored pencils. In the following images you can see the drawing sequence. I always begin drawing in one dominant color, and then slowly add the additional colors one by one. This way I have a full control over my values and color.
