Colored Pencil Portrait

8 by 10 colored pencil sketch ©Maria 2012

Love sketching with colored pencil the most.   Since I have started painting I don't always have the same patience for pencil drawing.  I want to add in my darks right away.  I feel as though I want a bigger pencil, as I would switch to a larger paintbrush!  Anyway, this a watching TV, from the couch, sketch I worked on last week.  Hope you are warm and dry where you are today.

Pet Point for the day, did you know that pets suffer from allergies, just like people do?


  1. From the description of your time with your children, I don't know how you find time to paint and draw. But, thankfully, you do. This is a lovely sketch, Maria. And no "C" word!

  2. Ha! Honestly, my house is a bit messy, I don't do a lot of cooking, my laundry pile is a bit too large, and my dog desperately needs a trim and a bath....but painting is my therapy.....keeps me somewhat sane :)
