In my younger years I was quite the artist. However, I was encouraged to put my talent to the wayside. I have a certificate in Fine Art, but never worked in colored pencils. I need to revisit the basics. I recently started a colored pencil sketch book. What do you think I should focus on first to improve my art? I know I have trouble with whites and either stopping too soon or muddying my colors by working too much. It’s been such a long time that I fear the white paper. So, I thought I would do a simple drawing to share and get some feedback before diving in to courses. My hope is to create realistic miniature art. I created this work prior to finding My Virtual Instructor, but I am excited to put pigment on paper.
