What’s in March 2021 CP Magic
Chloe Hibberd is a pet portrait artist specialising in realism using the medium of coloured pencil. Her goal with every portrait is to create a work of art that looks so real and alive, you might think you could reach out and touch the animal.
Chloe talks about her life as an artist, including growing up with a very artistic father and how that affected her own art journey.
The subject for Chloe’s tutorial is her rescue dog, Rosie. Chloe not only provides in-depth instruction on drawing Rosie, but also shares general tips and suggestions for successfully completing your own pet portraits on drafting film.
The Great Art Adventure
“The older I get, the more I enjoy drawing from life, especially when the life I’m drawing is outside. That is never more true than after a cold winter.” Carrie L. Lewis
Carrie talks about a side trip that turned into two brand new drawings, and how you can turn “spare time” into new art. She also shares her first impressions of Derwent Lightfast pencils on Lux Archival paper.
