My Journeys in Colored Pencil ... And Other Mediums
Wednesday, June 6, 2012
"Uplifted" 16x24" in colored pencil. I was inspired to draw from a photo I took in the medieval town on Koszeg, Hungary. It is a statue of an angel against the blue and gold wall of St James church built in 1403. I liked the textured peeling paint against the softness and intricate design on the statue. I chose to work on UArt 800 sanded paper in order to get good color coverage and some texture in the piece. I burnished background areas with a brush where I needed it to be smooth.
