Featured Artist: Oksana Burr
Russian-born artist Oksana Burr joins CP Magic! as the featured artist.
Oksana’s passion for art began when she was a high school student in Russia, and it continues today. Although she draws a wide variety of subjects, one thing links all of her work: her interest in realistically capturing everything she draws.
Oksana chose to draw the trunk of an ancient Sycamore tree she photographed while visiting a park. If you don’t think a tree trunk can be an interesting enough subject to draw, this one may change your mind. It’s full of character, color, and texture.
Oksana used Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils, Derwent Drawing pencils, and PanPastels on Clairefontaine Pastelmat.
