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!
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.
