March 2020 CP Magic is now available and waiting for you.
I am the featured artist this month. The March issue also includes a brand new column in addition to all the regular features.
What’s in March 2020 CP Magic
Featured Artist Interview
Among the topics in this month’s interview, I talk about the motivations of changing from oil painting to colored pencils, and the surprises that came with that change. You’ll also see how I work and organize my supplies to keep everything cat proof. Not usually an easy task.
Featured Artist Tutorial
My step-by-step tutorial is a landscape full of light and drama on Anthracite Clairefontaine Pastelmat. The tutorial includes tips on composing a dramatic landscape from an old reference photo, as well as sketching directly on drawing paper.
This month’s Before-and-After Clinic shows you how to draw long fur so it looks realistic, without also looking stringy. My thanks to Rhonda Gardener for her first question and for sharing her portrait before and after.
And the March 2020 issue of CP Magic includes a brand new feature: Making it Better. The Making it Better column is a reader crit column, thanks to Gail Jones. This month, I share tips on making a good drawing or water look even better. You don’t want to miss that.
Finally, I’m including a featured reference photo you can download and draw for yourself.
