What’s in CP Magic December 2020
This month’s featured article is a gift guide for colored pencil enthusiasts. My list includes online course and classes, downloadable tutorials and tools, and a select list of colored pencil merchandise and other fun stuff by category.
The resources include clickable links, so you needn’t go wandering around the cyber mall this year!
The December tutorial continues the holiday theme as I share one of my favorite still life tutorials. I’ll show you step-by-step how draw a stunning red Christmas ornament. I start with a base layer of muted local colors, then glaze color over that base layer, and finish with rich, vibrant colors.
The Great Art Adventure
Wouldn’t you think that staying focused on a really good adventure would be easy? Not always! December’s installment of The Great Art Adventure reveals those Ogres of the Urgent that can sidetrack even the most intrepid artist.
Staying Creative During the Holidays
The holiday season can be so busy, you may be considering setting aside your artwork until next year. Don’t do it! It’s so much easier to stay creative, than to try to reclaim creativity after even a short break. I share tips for finding (or making) time for art in December, as well as offering other ways to stay creative.
