One of my latest colored pencil works that I want to share is this composition of a rose in a mug.
Before I start my painting, I will usually study the number of objects that I need to complete. In this painting, I easily identify three objects: the mug (black), the rose (peach) and the background (grey).
Why do I mention the mug first?
It's because the darkest value catches the eye first. I then move on to the medium value and finish with the lightest value.
Currently, I'm working on the mug. I washed the mug with Prismacolor Tuscan Red and layered it with Violet Blue.
I'm ecstatic to find out that my colored pencil painting, 'Graceful Lemon', is one of the artworks featured on the front cover of CP Hidden Treasures, a publication by a renowned artist, Ann Kullberg. Visit Ann's website.
