Color Pencil Drawing

Style:
Realist. Detailed drawings with emphasis on nature and scenic vistas including landscapes, seascapes, and shells.

Each of my pictures is individually enhanced with color pencil highlights. The effect is a vibrant jewel-like color and a rich depth that is very unique. These highlights cannot be seen through your monitor and are truly magnificent when viewed in your environment.

Inspiration:
Natural beauty inspires me along with oddities of nature. The old Flemish and renaissance artists; John Singer Sargent.
