Does anybody here do colored pencil drawings? I'm anxious to see what you can do. I'm also interested in whether you do watercolors, or both, or both at the same time. examples please

have a look at the illustrations of Raymond Briggs in The Snowman, Father Christmas, The Bear, Ethel and Ernest and When the Wind Blows, amongst others

He uses coloured pencils quite brilliantly.

I sometimes use them in combination with watercolour/mixed media sketches.

I use colored pencil quite a bit, mostly by itself but sometimes with other media. My pencils of choice are prismacolor. Take a look at my avatar as an example of my colored pencil work.

it is indeed excellent. I always falter at using pencils / aquarelles as I fear they won't be vibrant enough for me in the end.
Stupid theory really, of course it depends how you use them.

watercolour and coloured pencil
Hi CarbonSystem,
I started using coloured pencil over watercolours a while ago because I felt that the couloured pencils on their own didn't really have a huge colour range.
For me I find it a great way to work but I guess it would kinda depend on your style.

If you start with a base of watercolours you can get some great fluid effects and subtlety and then pick out detail with the c. pencils. Also great for covering larger areas in colour. I find I can get cleaner and crisper detail with a sharp c. pencil than with a brush!
I find the "Aquarelle" type of coloured pencil with a more "chalky" texture works better than the more "waxy" type pencils.

If I get my act together I'll try and post some examples Smile

Sorry I have been gone so long. No I do not have a website yet. I am working on some projects so that I will have enough to put into a website. I also have to wait until the soon to be Mr. Aldistar has time to actually create a site for me (he is the computer savvy one). I am also currently waiting for my tax return so that I can purchase the ever elusive scanner that I need to scan in the metric ton of drawings I am compiling. Trust me, as soon as there is a site I will have it plastered all over the place.

I've never tried wtaercolour AND pencils together, because watercolours alone are pretty cool, and I'm not amazing with colour pencils anyway. You can try watercolour pencils!

link to life drawing in watercolour with coloured pencils (thought it wouldn't be ok to put nude drawings on this site?)

link to painting


my first life drawing in a loooong time, so rather rusty - and I would normally use charcoal and work much bigger.
