I took a great workshop from colored pencil artist Bonnie Auten. I used Derwent Coloursoft and Caran d'ache Museum Aquarelle Pencils. Bonnie has developed a technique that combines certain dry colored pencils and water soluble colored pencils that result in a very rich, painterly piece of art. I made this piece in the workshop on U-Art sanded paper (800 grit).
The Annual Ann Arbor Women Artists Show is being held at the Ann Arbor District Library Downtown, 343 South Fifth Ave. Ann Arbor, MI.. I have two pieces in this show! The Show runs through November.
I will be teaching a workshop "Creating a Still Life with Colored Pencils" June 18 and 19 with Ann Arbor Rec and Ed. This two day workshop teaches you to develop beautiful colors using layering techniques as you learn how to make colored pencil art look like an oil painting.
