A Second Cup

Pictured here is my newest piece, A Second Cup, which is based on an earlier piece I did, Self Portrait with Tea. For this piece, I employed a much warmer and richer color palette, and also a different colored pencil technique. This piece is 24" x 18", Prismacolor colored pencils on sanded paper mounted on board.

Preview of a New Piece

I have been working on a colored pencil drawing similar to one I did in 2008, but with a slightly different pose and more dramatic color scheme. I also am using a different colored pencil technique, as mine has evolved over the years. Here is a preview of a crop of the face (first image), and I have also included a crop of the 2008 version for comparison (second image). The final drawing will be scanned and posted on Friday.
