Colored Pencil Classes and Individual Expression.

I am always impressed by the enthusiasm and talent that my students show for colored pencil. We definitely work in a "representational" genre, as opposed to painting which more easily lends itself to abstract work.
Yet, I encourage my students to imprint their own style on their art. Making a photo-realistic representation of an image does not make it a superior colored pencil piece. I want each artist to find their own style, and express their vision of the world.

It was certainly interesting for me to read that blog. Thank you for it. I like such topics and everything connected to this matter. I would like to read a bit more soon.
