No, not a naughty post but a work in progress of three horses.  I took this shot back in the spring and since it's a 16 x 20 (my largest CP piece), it's taken me all summer to get it done which…READ MORE

Well, I have not yet completed my Christmas mailbox piece as I used a supposedly workable fixative to touch up some areas that were already saturated with color.  The fixative did not work and it…READ MORE

Hello Terry     I am loving your pencil work and I have just recently moved from graphite to colour pencil myself.  I am amazed that you can work on vellum without going through the paper. I am guessing that you select the right colour first up and don't need to do many many layers to achieve the 'right' look. I think I have a pretty light hand but I usually end up needing something like canvas paper. Any thoughts?????

Hi Terry, maybe you have already answered this somewhere else but I haven't seen it so I apologize if it is already there, but...... what kind of pencils do you use? The pictures in your gallery are amazing. Many look like they have a watercolor background. Do you mix watercolor with pencils and if so, which paper or support would you use? thanks!

Ok, thank you, Terry!

Ok, that makes sense! Mind if I ask what brand you prefer?

Wow! "dots of color"? That does sound tedious! I do like the idea of color mapping though and had never thought of that. I'll have to try that out and see what I come up with. As you can see by my work, I'm in to the burnishing thing. What I like about it is that it doesn't look like pencil strokes or circles, but I notice yours doesn't either and it's fascinating. When you are putting layer upon layer, how do you keep it from getting "shiny"? I hope I'm not bothering you with all these questions. And thank you, so much, for the lovely compliments on my work! It means a lot to me!

Hi Terry, I've got a question for you, in reference to colored pencil work. I know many use and teach the small circular motion for laying down color with colored pencils. Is that your technique too, or do you use a different pattern, no pattern or a combo? I've been using small circles and it's pretty tedious. I was just wondering if you use something else. I realize for animal fur, you probably can't use the circles, but any tips you have would be great! Thanks!
