Every colored pencil artist knows this feeling: A fist bursting full of colored pencils!
CP artists are usually detail oriented, organized and a bit uptight. I love using colored pencils, but tend to not be as organized as my fellow cp artists. My pencils get all mixed up, and I only organize them according to color when I have to teach a class, or if things have gotten so out of hand (pun intended) that I cannot locate the colors I need to use! The piece featured in today's post started out as a symbolic self portrait but I am calling it The Mighty Colored Pencil!
Here are some images of this picture as it developed.
