Creative Life

“The creative life is a constant striving against one’s inherent and often insurmountable limitations. “

The Local Herd


“The Local Herd” 8″x8″ Prismacolor and Verithin colored pencils on Strathmore Bristol Vellum. Deer lounging in my back yard shade; working from a photo to practice blending and contrast. Verithin pencils are harder and more permanent, so I use them to lay down the basic drawing and dark color scheme. Prismacolor pencils are softer and brighter, so I use them for color composition and blending.
