A couple months ago, I came across a YouTube video showing an artist using colored pencils to draw animals and people. Of course, I have used colored pencils before, but hadn’t really done any “real” artwork with them in years and years. I got out my colored pencils and gave it a try. Colored pencil artwork goes slower than watercolor or pastels, so the size has been a little smaller than I normally work. I love the way they are not messy and you don’t need to get out a lot of supplies to use them. Here are some pieces with colored pencils that I feel pretty good about.
I’ve also been working on Christmas ornaments to sell this season. Here are some of my wood slice ornaments with original painting. This year, I have packaged some of them in fancy boxes to sell as a set of two or five ornaments. All of these below are for sale on my Etsy shop at https://www.etsy.com/shop/JoyWallaceArtwork?ref=seller-platform-mcnav
I still have a couple of openings for portraits or pet portraits that can be done in time for Christmas. If you are interested, please let me know so we can get started!
