I love colour pencil drawing - very slow though, building up all the layers.

Nice pictures Antiq. I envy anyone who can draw or paint.

More! More! More!

Any medium. Love it all.

I can draw and paint but have NO idea about what you do Jan.

Tony; I used to paint and fire ceramics too but my eyesight is so bad for fine work now.

Antiq: You SHOULD get back to your art. Loved it.

I need to get my head around that "used to" phrase..... I seem to use it alot lately.

Agreed! Beautiful pictures! Love Pan :o :clap: :clap:

I don't have the patience for colour pencils, I'm afraid. My drawing life was turned around when I discovered digital painting^^ (you can go back if you foul it up! and it doesn't make a mess on your desk! [pastels, I'm looking at you -_-])

Some (more or less) recent stuff:

I don't think that I've posted any of my framed art work. These are done (slowly and painstakingly) with colored pencil.

This one is called Saguro Harvest Moon. I've used Tony's puzzle site to turn this into a jigsaw--fun but timeconsuming.

If you like these, I'll post some others. Sorry they're so big--but that's the way they came out.

The colour on that second one is really a lot more vibrant in real life. Unfortunately, the glass gets in the way of the photo. :)

Hard to get the angle right with glass and ambient natural light sometimes - lovely colour work Sharlene :clap:

Wow, I wish I could draw and paint that well! It's stunning stuff guys! It's all I can do to cross stitch.

Jan, got my poster framed in a simple frame and in just enough light to bring out the figures nicely!
