Re: Celebrating Loose and Impressionistic CP Work

I agree. Lovely portrait drawings - the colour definitely makes a different effect to graphite. (Also slightly off-topic, but I just had a quick look at your art Facebook page and I really like the eagle painting you did at the art party - so vibrant!)

Nice fruit Clair! I think I prefer the Dandelion picture though. It feels to me like it has much more energy.

If anyone is interested in looser CP landscapes, this artist on Youtube creates wonderfully colourful landscape drawings using cheap coloured pencils. He doesn't even use a reference photo, except for certain things like vehicles. So talented!

Re: Celebrating Loose and Impressionistic CP Work

Clair, really enjoy the textures you have created in your fruit sketch and Kirby, love the softness you convey in your portrait sketches. Artists with pencils communicate an infinite variety of styles and subjects!

Color Pencil Magazine has a free download, Look Book 2020, which showcases a wide variety of cp art, including softer looser styles as well as highly realistic. I am enjoying scrolling through a little at a time and admiring the many styles and subjects!

Re: Celebrating Loose and Impressionistic CP Work

Thought I would post the cover image from my Christmas present which just arrived yesterday from England. For me, it is one of the bext images showing on a color pencil box--and for sure it belongs in this topic!

Re: Celebrating Loose and Impressionistic CP Work

You're welcome, Vena! 😁 I enjoy using oil pastels and colored pencils, but am having a harder time finding my working style/rhythm with colored pencils. So, seeing the variety of works here and in other resources broadens my perspective.

Fun Christmas present, Clair! Love the lid! Enjoy the pencils. 😉

Jaw dropping is right, Clair! Holy cow!

It would be wonderful to watch the artist at work, even briefly!

Re: Celebrating Loose and Impressionistic CP Work

Scribbling is one of my favorite cp techniques. I often use it after I have a good base of color down. I love seeing visible pencils strokes. This very old thread is one of my absolute favorites, for that very reason. Another artist to check out is John Smolko. He takes scribbling to the extreme in his work, with very cool effects.

Re: Celebrating Loose and Impressionistic CP Work

I love the looser style of coloured pencil paintings. I've been trying to find an artist I came across a while ago who does fabulous semi rural and suburban landscapes but I can't remember her name.

This is my latest small effort. I'm really liking Bristol Board at the moment.

Re: Celebrating Loose and Impressionistic CP Work

The pattern on the bark of the trunk is very well thought out -- could maybe use some rough-up here and there --I love the receding path of the grasses behind the tree --

very nice job --

Re: Celebrating Loose and Impressionistic CP Work

Hope Among the Weeds from my photo below:



And here's the original shot


I made my take more sombre on purpose.

BUT let me tell you -- I'm going to keep on trying to solve the gravel issue -- gravel is really, really interesting but a bear for sure.It sucks you in.

Re: Celebrating Loose and Impressionistic CP Work

A thumbnail/first try at a tiny sketch on thin/glossy card stock ~ thinking of doing impressionistic northern style forest/landscapes around me. I will like the pencil strokes to show on a final piece, hopefully, to complement the rock structure, water movements, tree texture, the fabric of the sky. In the style of Lawren Harris. Here, his painting "Sand Lake, Algoma, 1922", a linework copy coloured by me.

Re: Celebrating Loose and Impressionistic CP Work

Yes, yes -- Harris (Carmichael too) and some Jackson as well. Even small, it looks strong.
Very much looking forward to the finish!

Re: Celebrating Loose and Impressionistic CP Work

Thanks for the link to the thread, Elaine, of Malcolm's work. Very interesting and fun. The scribbles were very effective. Something new to practice!

Your birch tree landscape is very pretty, Simon. Your palette is soft and natural. I like how you handled the branches and the grasses especially. Is Bristol Board a textured surface?

Clair, I feel your pain and admire your gritty determination. What you have posted is looking good. Hope to see it finished! (I'm currently working on an 8 x 10 scene of two ponies on a beach and it took a long time before settling on a way to do the beach.)

Really enjoy the line drawing you posted KolinskyRed by Lawren Harris! Your palette is lovely as are your strokes. Now I need to look up Lawren Harris!

If you haven't seen it yet, the Colored Pencil Society has a link to the 27th Annual CPSA International Exhibition 2019. I like how the juror choose a wide variety of styles including some softer and looser works.

Back to the beach...so to speak..

Mary Flora
