Winter Distractions


This photo is not me getting ready to go skiing, but getting ready to go shoveling. Again. But I have been planning a new still life, and my canvas is prepped and ready to go for Monday. In the meantime, below is a photo - actual size, on my screen - of a mini (3x3!) drawing I did of a local farm. This drawing, along with other drawings by members of the New England Chapter of the Colored Pencil Society of America (CPSA), will be part of a collage that will be shown at the Annual CPSA Convention in Dallas, TX this July. I did this on sanded paper, so some of the details are rough... but it definitely has the overall feel of Peter's Farm in the summer. And it made me forget about the snow for a little while.

Ha! I think I look kind of scary. :) But thank you!

Your colored pencil work (as well as your other work) is beautiful and inspirational! What kind are you using?

Thank you! I use Prismacolor soft core colored pencils.

I love Prismacolors! I am thinking about expanding my collection to include the forty or so colors on the extreme end of the series that I don't yet have.
