Red Coat Woman

I am really really liking these colored pencils on watercolor. They're water-soluable ones, but I haven't yet been tempted to use water on them....

...and these last two pictures are things I never even dreamed I could make. I really like them, And though I used references for them, they are not just copies. They become real people, with their own characters and lives. I love it when that happens (there's no point, otherwise).


  1. I have water-soluble pencils too, and I hardly ever use them. I have no idea why, I think I'll get them out of the box tomorrow!

    Great atmosphere in this one, it's rather still in a way, but there's movement from the strokes and the fabric. She looks like she has a very hard decision to make.

  2. AAAAAAHHHHH! OKAY! OKAY! OKAY! You blew me aways with the last 6 images you posted...OMG! I am overwhelmed. These are magnificent!!!!!!

  3. These are becoming something else entirely.

    Really amazing. Can I ask what you are sketching them on (not that I will have a clue what the answer means). I just hope you are keeping them and seeing how truly incredible all of your sketches are.

    Love Renee oxoxo
