Lots of photos today! That's what happens when I take a holiday vacation day and settle in for a nice long afternoon of coloring. There were a few times where I was starting to get concerned that the tones in this coloring were getting just a bit too dreary - but I have to admit [...]

A bit of silent holiday season blogging, listening to the scritchy scratchy sound of pencils on paper. :) Today's coloring progress slideshow: Today's book: Transcend For Crayons And Wide Tipped Markers (Angie's Gentle Mood Menders - Volume 4) Colored with: Derwent Graphitint pencils

Transcend Wide Tipped – Slow Shading Part 3

When I'm drawing, I never really think about how complex one of my drawing might be. One line tends to lead gently to the next, and certain types of shapes like to appear in family groups at times. Bit by bit, it all adds up until the drawing is full of lines and shapes that [...]

As I was finishing up my last coloring (the all graphite pencil picture) I was also doing a lot of sketchpad drawing. And in the middle of all of the gray tones on my sketchbook pages, all of a sudden little dabs of color started to sneak in. Part of that color play was with [...]

One of the things that's going on in the background while I color this piece is that every time I finish coloring a set of shapes, I keep thinking that I'm going to do those little polka dots next. And then I try to pick a shade for them and start thinking that maybe I'll [...]

As I get older I get ever more comfortable with short pencils. My current sketchbook graphite drawing pencil is somewhere between stub size and ridiculous stub size right now. It gives my rough drawings on my sketch pad extra unplanned touches as lines bend every which way. Short pencils don't have the same elegant balance [...]

Transcend – Day 3 (More Thoughts On Fear And Tension)

I tend to be a calm and rational person. I feel deeply but forgive easily. And I'm pretty good at stepping back from external fuss and finding the place of inner peace and strength that is always with me - even if some days it's kind of a challenge to find it. Sometimes there are [...]
