COLORED PENCIL DEMO
I taught a short workshop at Art on the Green in Conway last week to two very good artists on drawing with colored pencil. They didn’t finish their first drawing, since it takes lots of time to do colored pencil work. Above is the 9 x 12″ drawing I started as a demo (I didn’t get very far either). So I thought I would work on this as home and blog the progression.
This is an image of beached boats that I took in Spain several years ago. I left out one of the boats and corrected the left side of the photo to show the entire boat on the left. As you can tell, the beach area has only one layer of colored pencil at the moment. There was a lot of straw or thin strips of wood in the sand, so I used a sharp instrument to scratch in that suggestion before I started. I also scratched in my signature so that it would show up when completed.
The top part of the drawing is the sea with the red boat moored in it. There are probably four layers of colored pencil in this section already, but it is not complete as yet. I haven’t figured out as yet how to show the bits of surf. I will work on this, and write another blog sometime soon. Keep drawing!
