New miniature on canvas

Miniature - colored pencil on canvas, 3.5
colored pencil on canvas, 3.5″ x 2.5″

Most of this one was done with an artificial light, and today I was going to put finishing touches on it while we were at the Pescadero Beach. But the sunlight showed me that more than just that was needed. Good thing that the weather was very warm and without strong winds, or the miniature would travel back home to be finished there. I must say though that colored pencils start to lay on the canvas in a funny way as humidity goes up. I think if I was working with water soluble ones, I would end up with a painting without adding water.

  1. This is so amazing! Working with CP on canvas is quite difficult and even more so with such a small size.

  2. Thank you, Bleuie. I found that softer pencils work very nicely on canvas and blend easier too. They have to be an artist grade of course. Scholar types tend to just glide over the surface leaving very little color on it.

  3. I’m so happy, I’ve just started with CP a few months ago and I’m amazed with such great art that can be done with it. I’ve seen a CP art on a 5×10 foot canvas and now stumbled upon your site and saw this amazing miniature art. You are very talented. Best wishes to you.
