Coloured pencil, pastel pencil and acrylic

60 x 40 cm on pastel board

I always been a coloured pencil purist and rarely have I entertained the thought of adding another medium or two, to my cp work.

Lately though I have been going through a stage of experimentation and today’s painting is a combination of coloured pencil, pastel pencil and acrylic paint, Matisse Acrylic Flow to be exact.

I can see there is much potential with this approach and I need to pursue it further. Gouache, watercolour, pastel pencils (to a certain extent) and acrylics are good ‘bed fellows’ with coloured pencil. Then of course there’s water soluble pencils to add to the mix, plus inks and dyes.

Isn’t art exciting!
