Stones

Am I allowed to say that I love a piece of my own art? If so, I love this one. I am just so pleased with the way it turned out. It is my daughters favorite as well. It measures 6x8 and is a color pencil painting. Why am I calling it a painting if it is a color pencil drawing? Because, it is done in layers with the color pencil and then using mineral spirits to spread out the color with a brush or swab giving it a washed effect, more like painting than your typical color pencil effect.
SOLD!

Marbles


It was really time consuming to put all the color and light reflections in this piece, but it was worth the effort. I am happy how this came out. I hope it as good online as it does in person. It is a color pencil painting measuring 7x9. Why am I calling it a painting if it is a color pencil drawing? Because, it is done in layers with the color pencil and then using mineral spirits to spread out the color with a brush or swab giving it a washed effect, more like painting than your typical color pencil effect.
SOLD!

Box of Chocolate


This one was fun to do. It measures 8x10 and looks much better in person. For some reason the scan just didn't capture all of the subtle details in the candy that I painstakingly put in.
SOLD!

ONIONS AND GARLIC


Ok, here we go. My first offering is a color pencil painting measuring 7x10. Why am I calling it a painting if it is a color pencil drawing? Because, it is done in layers with the color pencil and then using mineral spirits to spread out the color with a brush or swab giving it a washed effect, more like watercolor than color pencils.
SOLD!
