I loved drawing these fall leaves using my colored pencils.
Actually the green leaf is about 6" x 6" and is sold.
The golden leaf is about 12" x 9" and is also sold. They looked so great framed. I was encouraged to do more drawings and did another one , larger and has a little oil pastels rubbed into the colored pencils. Oil pastels is just wonderful with Prismacolors as
they are both oil based and both can be deluded with solvent.
This always surprises my artists ( I have learned not to call my students, students, but to call them artists as I learn from them as much as they learn from me). Some times I forget but I try not to call them students. I have the most wonderful bunch of artists any
one can have.
I have been an artist for as long as I can remember. I went to college when I was 37 years old. I loved it so much, I was a sponge and absorbed anything and everything about art. I started out wanting to be a portrait artist but ended up using pencil and colored pencils. I made quite a name for myself with my drawings. I won many awards. When I needed a break from that I went into oil sticks and just loved them and again did very well with awards. I finally went back to my oils but always felt frustrated with them I wanted to be free from all constraints, I am now working in acrylics and loving them. So now the sky is the limit. I just want to go and do everything I feel and want to express.
