Step by step drawing 'Red Glass"

Here are some progress photos that i took during the making of my "Red Glass" colored pencil drawing. The drawing is made using Coloursoft Pencils and Prismacolor Colored Pencils on a 8x11 Inch pastel paper.

If anyone would be interested in a more detailed tutorial on colored pencil drawing and techniques please leave a comment below and i will add more posts in the future to cover your requests.

 I started out with the top half of the glass pitcher and worked my way down. I used multiple tones of reds and grays to get the shading. 

 Here you can see the different tones of red that are on my drawing. The white on the drawing is done with the white Prismacolor Pencil.

 The details on the bottom half of the pitcher took the longest as i wanted to make sure they where all in the right position not to disturb the eye.

This is the final result. I added in some white gel pen highlights to really make the reflections pop out. 

The drawing can be purchased here

ACEO Paintings

What is an ACEO you might wonder? For those who don't know ACEO stands for Art Cards Editions & Originals. These are miniature artworks measuring 2.5 x 3.5 Inch and they are a great and affordable way to collect original art. 

I recently started making ACEO's next to my other paintings and drawings and my frist set of ACEO's cover the 4 seasons:





My second set of ACEO's are Halloween themed, currently there is only 2 of them but more are on the way!





All my ACEO's are one of a kind works of art and will not be reproduced!

Butterfly colored pencil drawing

I especially enjoy drawing with colored pencils. My style is realism and photo-realism.
Below i am sharing a step by step drawing of a Blue Morpho butterfly. I am using Prismacolor premier and Derwent Coloursoft on Stonehenge 8x11 paper.


Step 1 - outlines and base color


Step 2 - defining the shadow areas and adding more layers of color to achieve a depth effect


Step 3 - adding more shades, in accordance to the reference photo i am using


Step 4 - adding some of the background details 


Step 5 - more background added 


Step 6 - working on the background and refining the details on the butterfly. Once the background is added, i can see better if the butterfly needs more work or deeper shadows 


The finished drawing
