Welcome to November 2022 CP Magic! magazine.
Debbie Bowen joins CP Magic! Magazine as the featured artist. As you can see from the cover image below, she does beautifully detailed work.
Her preferred mediums are colored pencils, pastels, and PanPastels. Although she does work using only pastels and only colored pencils, she also often combines those mediums.
Her favorite drawing surfaces are drafting film and Clairefontaine Pastelmat; two very different surfaces.
In her chat with me, she talks about how she came to art, what she likes about her two preferred surfaces, and her working process. She also shares advice on Icarus boards, and getting started with colored pencils as a retiree.
Debbie then walks you through the process of drawing a lovely, very colorful bowl using PanPastels and colored pencils on Pastelmat. Artists at all levels can successfully complete this project.

Product Review: Karismacolor Colored Pencils
I first heard of these pencils from fellow artist Sarah Renae Clark in one of her many popular videos. The subject of her video was “fake” Prismacolor pencils. Needless to say, I was intrigued. Are they really Prismacolor pencils in disguise or a cheap knockoff?
After watching the video, I decided to order a full set and see for myself. In this month’s product review, I tells you all about them, what I liked, what I didn’t like, and whether or not they’re worth the price.
