Experiment

February 20, 2016

A few months ago, I bought a couple of sheets of wood paper (I think it's birch). I decided to try them out, and I used my Caran d'Ache Pablo pencils, as well as my Lyra pencils. They both work very nicely on wood.

The wood paper I used is smoother than the regular paper I use (Stonehenge), yet, it holds many layers. It works great with both solvent and a colorless blender. The only difference is the direction of the wood grain/veins. The little crevaces can be annoying sometimes. Because of this texture, it's definitely different than with paper, but because the pencils feel very smooth on the wood, it's very enjoyable.

A little break

May 9, 2014

To get my creative juices flowing again.

After I finished my last commission, a few weeks ago, I decided to take a little break from using my colored pencils. As much fun and challenging as custom work is, it can be a creativity killer sometimes. So I spent the last couple of weeks just using my brushes with watercolor and oil paints. Just for fun, painting what I felt like that day. Here are a few paintings I did:

Plumeria 12 - 5x7" - Watercolor - SOLD
