There is gorgeous colored pencil work out there from emerging artists, complete unknowns, and from those too timid (or intimidated) to enter the big shows. To those of you who recognize that timid artist in you...let me tell you something I learned a long, long time ago
Having trouble seeing the details of the drawing? Then you're not taking full advantage of our downloadable kits...because the PDF kit images can be enlarged a great deal so you can see every single detail, while losing very little resolution.
Make sure you are viewing the In-Depth Kit in Adobe Acrobat and not in your browser! If it doesn't say Adobe Reader at the very top of the page when you're viewing one of our digital kits, then you're reading it in your browser. Look for this icon (right) to know that you are reading it in Adobe Reader.
I'm passing on an email I received this morning from our local CPSA Chapter President, Pam Belcher, because it's exciting news!
Pam wrote:While at the CPSA convention in July, I learned about this upcoming very exciting online exhibit opportunity. ARTSPECTATIONS!
Oh...and by the way, guess who's giving the program for our next CPSA chapter meeting on September 14th? Me!
The program title is: The Pre-Drawing Process of Creating a Beautiful Portrait"
We were just supposed to be getting together for some yummy Thai food, but then...
Last weekend, I had dinner plans with 3 other artists. We get together fairly often to enjoy each others company and to yack about life and art. Three of us are colored pencil artists - myself, Anne deMille Flood (who wrote Realistic Pet Portraits in Colored Pencil) and Denise MacDonald. The fourth member, Francis Buckmaster, is an artist of all mediums. Frances emailed us all a few days prior to our get together, asking if we'd meet 2 hours early for a little adventure. She was quite mysterious about it, which upped the interest level considerably!
But what does that have to do with you?For the past two years, CP Magazine has been expertly and beautifully designed each month by Garry Dimapilis...who happens to live in Manila.
