Layering with Colored Pencils

Dried leaf. Colored pencil, 2016.
Lately I've been interested in capturing small objects as accurately as possible in colored pencil. This drawing was done from a leaf I picked up somewhere in my life this past autumn. It's only about 1.25" long, but my drawing is on 9x12" Stonehenge with Prismacolor pencils. This is the second in a series of four leaves I'm making for prints and notecards in my etsy shop.

NEW Drawing from Life Class starting in February!

Beginning February I am offering a brand new class that focuses on drawing directly from life. You'll learn how to draw objects and people in front of you rather than working from photographs. Projects include glass, natural objects, fabric folds, and people. Each session is carefully planned to introduce specific skills and concepts that build onto the next lesson. Ages 16 and up, no prior experience necessary.
