New class dates

I have added new dates for the Introduction to Coloured Pencil course. This new session will run on three weekdays in April: Monday April 21st, Wednesday April 23, and Friday April 25, 9:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.

The previously scheduled June dates (Saturdays: June 7th,14th, 21st) for this course are still available. If you would like to read further info on the intro course or other classes being offered, please visit the classes section of my website.

This week I am going to redo the orchid piece, this time on white printmaking paper versus a burgundy coloured sheet of Colorfix pastel paper. I shall post my progress. I look forward to comparing the two results.

I agree, its good to look over another artist's shoulder as they work - if they can stand it :)

I think we have similar working habits in cp and stonehenge is one of my favourite supports for this medium.

Your orchid is coming on well and I like the softer background, it will make the flower stand out well and complement it.

I just hate that 'ugly stage' that a drawing goes through before it starts to come together, don't you?

Hi Jeanette,

Ah the ugly stage...when I first started to draw, I could see the good and the bad in a piece. But once I started in coloured pencil I didn't know if the yuck stage was me and my ineptitude with the medium or if there was hope for the work eventually. I guess I had been living under the proverbial rock - I didn't know that in the making of art that there was an ugly stage! Thanks for mentioning it. It is definitely something people new to art need to know.
