Back to Pencils

It has been a little while since I got out  my coloured pencils.They are a great medium to use when you just want to sit and relax. With coloured pencils there is no mess and no fuss. ( No dirty paint brushes left in the water for days...ooops! )

I would love to hear your thoughts on works in coloured pencils. How do you think they compare with works in acrylic or watercolour? Would you purchase a work in colored pencil as you would a painted piece. I would be really interested to hear your comments. 



  1. So charming and well done! Love your mum and you in pencils.
    Thank´s for this inspiration.

    Greetings from Erika

  2. A wonderful colored pencil work.
    Colored pencil is as good as every other medium in my mind!

  3. Oh Fuzzy, that's sweet! What a very touching little picture! Love what you have done with the coloured pencils.

    Thank you for your nice comment and I'm glad you agree with me about the cookies stuff that keeps coming up! It's a constant irritation! Also, glad you like my wings. I have been very busy these past few days working on my mystery projects which should get their big reveal next weekend, all being well! I've been having such fun.


  4. What an adorable picture. Bravo Carol!! I decide if I like a picture based on the picture itself not on the medium, so yes I would purchase a picture in pencil as much as I would one of any other medium. Have a lovely week ahead {{Hugs}}

  5. I agree with Twinkle Toes2day. Art is art. If it appeals to me what does it matter what the medium is.

  6. This is so lovely and delicate. Maybe it's the paper you use and the way you handle the pencils, but my coloured pencilled drawings always look a bit pencilly. However having seen your art here, I'm going to give it another try as I've inherited quite a few coloured pencils. Thanks for the inspiration.
