My drawing process is pretty simple. I don’t use a computer or other technology to generate an image, although I do use a computer to view the original photo to get the correct coloring. I wouldn’t even know where to begin to do a good digital drawing. My process includes picking up a pencil, sketching an image on white, heavyweight paper (approx. 100-150lb), coloring it in with colored pencils, and adding some highlights with acrylic paint (usually white). Pure and simple art.
My drawing style…
My style of drawing has changed widely over the years, but for the past few years I have concentrated on drawing in colored pencils (with some added white acrylic for highlights). I guess you could call me a “Pencil Painter,” because I paint with pencils. They’re easy to work with, never dry out, allow quick changes, and I think they are an enjoyable medium to create in.
UPDATE March, 2015: It’s been just over a year since my mom passed away. I’ve slowly started to get back to drawing and painting, but not with colored pencils. My mom was such a huge supporter of my work, and her not being here to see any new colored pencil drawings feels a bit strange to me. I’m not saying that I’ll never work in colored pencils again… but for now, I’ve taken a liking to watercolors! Stay tuned for some new paintings to be added to this site. Until then, you can view my latest works on my Facebook page.
