Color pencil drawing was at one time a medium I had high hopes for adding color to my artwork. Unfortunately, I had no prior training in their use and the results I got were not as good as I had hoped. So I moved on. As you know, I have worked in oil painting and more recently digital. However, even with the increasingly better results I am achieving with digital painting, thanks to some handy Youtube videos, I still miss working with physical materials.
Well, given that there were videos on working with Gimp 2.8, I thought “hey, there might be some on color pencil techniques” and guess what, there are. So I watched some the other night and I am going to give them a try. I first have to buy some new tools that I was unaware of, then I will start practicing. Maybe soon I will be able to share with you another form of artwork. Moral: In this day and age, don’t be afraid to learn something new. There are resources out there that were not even thought of years ago.
