CP Magic November 2020 is now available and waiting to inform, entertain, and inspire you!
What’s in CP Magic November 2020
Virginia artist Cathy Antkes Choyce is the featured artist. Cathy is primarily a portrait artist, but is also expanding into gallery art and teaching. She specializes in pet and animal portraits, but her “full scene” images are filled with eye candy in both composition and detail.
Cathy talks about her artistic journey, the motivations for her stunning equine, canine, and fox art, and the new directions her art has taken her. If you’re a beginning portrait artist, or if you want to become a portrait artist, she has great advice to get you off to a fast start.
Cathy’s tutorial features the wily fox in beautiful close up. It’s a beautiful blend of colored pencil work on the fox, and pan pastel work in the background. If you’ve ever wanted a closer look at mixing these two media, you don’t want to miss this tutorial.
The Great Art Adventure
With all great adventures come a variety of obstacles. Some are obvious and some are not. Those less obvious obstacles often catch us by surprise if we’re not careful. This month, Carrie talks about one of the least often recognized obstacles facing artists on a great art adventure.
With the end of the year rapidly approaching, many artists are starting to think about goal setting. Did you know that not every way of tracking goals works for every artist? Did you even know there was more than one way to track goals?
Carrie takes a break from the more technical aspects of colored pencil art to share her thoughts on goal setting and goal tracking.
