A Knobbly Few - CP on stonehenge by Belinda Lindhardt

Just thought i would post my most recent CP completed piece in case you missed it over on my blog.

If you are a cp artist and want to be featured on the blog why not send me a message i would be happy to feature your work.

I also recently started a new cp piece it will be a big one and will take me some time but i am really looking forward to it. As its so big i am going to change my technique slightly and mainly work on it standing up on an easel as opposed to a desk. Already i can see that by standing i am looking at it from a distance much more i think it will really improve the way i work. Lets see shall we :) Stay tuned for more.

Care of the UKCP society blog, here is a post about The Queen opening the new Derwent factory in the UK. I thought this was pretty cool for the world of CP :) If your interested go along to their blog and checkout the photos :)

Last Saturday June 7, was World Drawing Day. Fortunately I was demonstrating my colour pencil technique at an Art exhibition at Scottsdale in North East Tasmania. It took me two days to complete the study of rocks from a location about 15 kilometres from my home.
I used mainly Polychromos pencils (warm greys) with some Prismacolors for highlights, namely white, yellow ochre and warm grey 70%. I also added a touch here and there of Aquarelle black.
I have started using Stonehenge paper and am particularly fond of black which accepts Polychromos pencils with ease.

Aritst's Palette Magazine - issue 62

For all the Australian readers many of my coloured pencil artworks are featured in this months issue (Issue 62) of Artist's Palette Magazine which came out today :)

It has a little blurb about my squiddo lens (at the time of materials submission this blog wasn't setup) but its a great bit of exposure not only for myself but of Australian Coloured pencil artists as well.

If your near a newsagency check it out. Overseas visitors i have been told this magazine is sold overseas as well so over the next few months keep an eye out :)
