Pencil Paintings

In September of 2012, I took a colored pencil class with Cynthia Knox. The butterfly pencil painting is what I did in her class and gave to my daughter for her birthday. The technique is to use very tiny circular pencil strokes and create layer upon layer of color, along with burnishing between layers. It is extremely time consuming, but the end results look like an oil painting. The Dragonfly, that I did for my son, is a mixed media painting done with watercolor, colored pencil and ink.
