And here is my new girl, finally finished. Ballerina Dreamer, 32 x 42cm, Prismacolor Premier Pencils, Gouache highlights, Fabriano Artistico paper, 52 hours, Irishka Photography. This drawing has been completed entirely using the full set of Prismacolor Pencils that I was extremely lucky to have won as 'Best Of Show' in the Ann Kullberg 16th Annual Members Exhibition (http://annkullberg.com/pages/member-show-info). And so, this is my 'Ann Kullberg prize winning pencils painting!' I would also like to therefore dedicate this drawing to CP - Ann Kullberg's magazine for Colored Pencil Artists, Bleuie Acosta, Priscilla and the team with Ann who all work with so much passion, determination and experience to make coloured pencils and accessible medium supported with great education and inspiration. Ann has started the careers of many artists.......I believe, humbly, that I am on that list of people who owe Ann a great deal. I also dedicate this to all of the people out there with a dream.......sometimes those dreams do come true. Ref photo chosen and title chosen by my 4 year old! (he's got a real good little eye that one!) . I hope you like her........I wanted a painterly, warm, enveloping and ethereal feel to her.....perhaps you can read her thoughts and guess what her dreams are........kxxx
