Backlit Berries 6 X 18 Colored Pencil on Ampersand Pastelboard

OK everyone you get 2 entries on the blog today due to my lack of getting anything posted in a while.

Second in my Backlit series to be completed, although this one took me a while since I've had 2 classes running for the last 6 weeks.  Amidst many family obligations this was a fun one to work on.  I again like the size of this piece as it looks great on a small easel on my kitchen counter while I wait for the frame to be delivered.  A more stretched out version of this one at 6 X 18 versus the 6 X 12 of the citrus piece a few months ago was also intriguing.  The glow of the light through these strawberries and the juice droplets on the surface plane convey everything I love about strawberries.

I hope you like them!  Have a colorful day!


Spring Colored Pencil Painting Class Finished

These are just a few of the finished or nearly finished "Pick A Pepper" projects from my spring students in the beginner colored pencil classes.  All with their own unique style and variations.  I can't tell you how proud I am of these adult students.  And also how wonderful they all are as artists and people.  It's the best part of teaching getting to know other artists, despite what they are constantly teaching me.  I am also constantly thinking what else can I show or teach them?

They will currently be working on their 3rd project, their personal one.  Each with an image of their choosing.  Many will continue until mid June when my open studio session is over.  And I can't wait to see how they finish their work or start another.

New classes for beginners Painting In Colored Pencil will start in the fall (Sept. 6 - Oct. 11 1:00 - 4:00 pm) and for my continuing or experienced students a new class in Sanded Surfaces with Colored Pencil, Sept. 6 - Oct. 11th 9:30 - 12:30.

Have a colorful Day!
