A New Technique- my new art piece “A Light Sleep”

Here’s an art piece I did using black, white, and grey colored pencils on this tan piece of paper. I let some of the paper show through, which I thought was kinda cool. Here’s the finished product!

Tip: Instead of doing a black and white drawing on white paper, change it up! Draw on colored paper, and let the color of that paper show through. Use the colors in the paper to give you a nice effect!

Getting a Drawing in an Art Gallery

This was kind of a while ago, but I forgot to post about my artwork getting in an art gallery! I participated in the Young American Talent Competition. “Prepping for Prom” is a colored pencil and watercolor pencil of two of my best friends. About 125 were chosen out of 600 entries from high school students around the Dallas area to be in the exhibition and competition. I didn’t win, but it’s already an achievement to get into the show, and it was so amazing to see my work in a gallery! The exhibit was held in the H. Paxton Moore Art Gallery in downtown Dallas. Who knows, maybe I’ll win something next year? In the meantime, I’m just glad I was chosen!

(P.S. It’s a coincidence that I’m blogging about “Preppin’ for Prom” when I am actually prepping for prom! I’m going this Saturday, and I’m super excited 🙂 )

Prepping for Prom

A couple years ago, my mom and grandma drove me and a couple of my friends to our church camp. On the way, we stopped by this really cool Sonic with retro phones. My mom took pictures of my friends Lindy and Lacy ordering their food. I changed the pictures up a little bit and made it a prom story.

The girls are colored pencil, and the background is in watercolor pencil.Image

Snow Will Fall

Okay, here’s a new piece I just finished. I kind of combined a couple pictures I found to make this. It’s a little darker than my other pieces, but I think it turned out looking nice.

I like listening to music while drawing. Lots of Disney 🙂

 

 

First of course, I started with the pencil outline, and started filling it in with colored pencil starting with an important focal point of the art piece:

This is what it looked like when finished! Hope you like it!
