This piece I wanted to create as mixed media instead of straight color pencil. I typically shy away from mixed media so this was doubly challenging for me! However, I was quite pleased with the result. The paper is a handmade pastel paper in a beautiful dusty blue- I love that you can see the wrinkles of the paper throughout, even on the scan; it adds a great element to the piece! I created the main image in Prismacolor color pencils. On top of the color pencils I chose to work in stippling or pointillism details. Original drawing is 8"x10" and framed to 11"x14".
I started creating art when I was young, and haven't stopped since! I've been an active drawing artist from the age of 17 on, fulfilling commissions in business logos previously and moving into portraits, still life and most recently children's book illustration. I received my BFA from Wittenberg University and currently spend time freelancing and flying around on airplanes. I take immense joy in working on commission pieces for individuals and businesses! I love working with my clients to create their perfect piece and include them each step of the way (current projects are a children's book, a portrait and 2 architectural drawings for different clients). I currently continue to do freelance work for clients and participate in juried art festivals, while keeping a happy household with a rambunctious little 6 year old to give me a hand.
