A glimpse from the past!

I have not always been a daily sketcher.  My last posting of watercolor pencils brought up memories.   I fell in love with colored pencil and stayed focused for 12 or more years. Mostly animal portraiture. Gradually my colored pencil work took on the look of pastel. So I progressed to pastels and focused on color in still life.   I have always had a love of portraiture …people.

Here is a glimpse from the past!

Colored pencil!



Pastel pencil!


The real challenge for me has been drawing from life.   All of my prior work was from photos.  I would spend hours photographing cherries.  I still have folders and folders of cherries and other fruit on my computer. I studied how to photograph animals!

I am happy where I am today…sketching from life.    It continues to be an interesting journey.
