Archive for the ‘Color Pencils’ Category

     Last weekend, I reviewed my old sketch book and found some nude sketches of different women.  I remembered it was 7 years ago, when these nude women posed in front of me together with other artists. Since most of my sketches are just rendered in ordinary pencil.  I decided to retouch it and add color to it by using Derwent Water Color Pencils.  I was surprised it worked well with Academie Colored Paper.  Never thought Academie is also durable for Water Coloring.  I can’t wait to share this to you, so here it is.  And I will post another. Until my next upload.  Thank you for visiting.

It was Saturday, usually we don’t have work on weekends but I had this Offline interlock with Agency and Client for a certain TVC Project. Less people at the office and almost zero phone calls. I could steal this moment to make an entry to my new sketch book that I bought 2 months ago. I used Derwent Studio Pencils and Berkeley acid free watercolor pad for this one. I saw a picture of a woman from Shutterstock and its seems like a nice subject. I am not giving full on this because from time to time I have to leave my workstation and go to the editing suite. See what’s going on there. I just want to entertain myself since I am the only one here at the Marketing Room, and my table is far behind it and I have a perfect view of other empty tables…Anyway here it is, and hope you like it. You can also visit the website where I uploaded most of my works. Thanks again.  http://emeraldsantos.deviantart.com/#/d3chy3g

 

Another public figure, a Welsh Actress, whom I really admire…that is…Catherine Zeta-Jones.  I would like to share my very first attempt of using  color pencils for her portrait.  I used Lyra Rembrandt Color Pencils, a gift from my father.  I think this was done 12 years ago. When I was at home and done with my household chores and my kids were little and sleeping. I do enjoy doing my art where everybody is sleeping or usually just me being alone.Here it is, my rendition of her… Hope you like it.

Brendan Fraser is one of my favorite Hollywood actor, since his early movie ” California Man”. From then on, I looked forward to all of his movies.  And also, I always include him as my male subject.  I remember I did an acrylic painting of him as ‘George of the Jungle’, unfortunately I cannot share that with you because I sold it few years ago.  But anyway, what I have right now is a pencil sketch of him.  I was watching The Mummy where He is the leading actor, froze my DVD player to catch this sweet smile.  I used Lyra Rembrandt Color Pencils on Canson paper.
