I love color and your portfolio is filled with it! Its a joy to skim through and see all this abstract work. Some of your art reminds me of the ocean, with reeds being pulled to and fro with the deep current and well all of them are wonderful:)


My best regards

Thank you so much for your comment Mitch :) I have always loved bright colors and jewel tones, and it definitely shines through in my art.

Did you use a blending pencil or some other sort of blending on this? It's very nice.

No blending. The texture comes from the art sticks. They are waxier than colored pencils, a little like a crayon.

Yes, I have Art Stix and they come is really handy when you have a large area to cover. It's quite tedious though, when you are trying to blend the whole area as well.
