Announcing CP Magic April 2021, with featured artist Tammy Hoffert.
This issue of CP Magic is 40 pages of great and inspiring information for colored pencil artists at all levels, including two brand new features.
Here’s a peek.
What’s in CP Magic April 2021
The Featured Artist
Tammy Hoffert has been passionate about colored pencils since first trying them. She draws a variety of subjects and gives each one her special attention to detail. But a glance at her gallery of works reveals a special interest in still life and floral subjects.
Tammy’s tutorial reveals that special passion, combining a beautiful butterfly and flower.
Tammy chose Canson Mi-Teintes paper (Ivy color) for capturing the delicate colors of the butterfly and the vivid pinks of the flower. She’ll show you how to draw the tiniest details in this tutorial, which she wrote with the beginners among us in mind.
The Great Art Adventure
If you’ve ever purchased brand new paper or the latest pencils, then hesitated to use them, you’ll love this month’s Great Art Adventure. Carrie recently had a similar experience and tells how she overcame that reluctance to “spoil new paper.”
New This Month: The Landscape Artist
Carrie launches the first of two new features with a column dedicated to landscape artists. The debut column shares tips for creating your own beautiful landscape art.
Even if you’ve never before drawn a landscape.
Also New This Month: Reader Gallery
The most exciting rollout is the Reader Gallery. This five-page gallery is reserved for the work of CP Magic readers. Each month will feature four or five pages of reader art.
But every reader who submits work is included in the online CP Magic Reader Gallery. Take a peak at the April collection here, then learn how you can submit your latest finished colored pencil artwork.
