Art Corners: Traveling with Art Supplies

Is keeping a photographic record of your work is important?

Featured Artist: Carmen Barros


Carmen Barros joined Carrie to discuss her transition from wet media to colored pencils, her fascination with still lifes against black or dark backgrounds, and how she sets up and photographs her subjects.

She also has a unique way of choosing the colors she uses for each project, as well as finding the elements for many of her works, and she shares her methods in both areas.


Carmen’s tutorial includes her trademark dark background, this time paired with color-filled glassware. If accurately drawing glass or reflections gives you fits, then do this project with Carmen. You will learn a lot!
