Colored Pencil this week


I've been clearing clutter from my studio which means I haven't been making art... it was a total disaster. However, I promised myself, at least one piece a week so Friday I did a something I haven't done in a very long time... colored pencil... a turtle that was one of the images from the wet canvas weekend drawing event... I'm quite pleased with how it came out. I like turtles... they are a good reminder.... if you're going to get anywhere you've got to stick your neck out.

Your turtle is lovely - I like the strong values you've got from coloured pencil.
I also thought you'd be interested in this post I was sent today, Helen, from 'Layers of Meaning' blog - http://layersofmeaning.org/wp/?p=345 - about encaustic, which I've seen you use very effectively on your blog.

I love turtles. They know how to live....slow and easy! This is an exquisite rendering of such a noble creature!
