I thought maybe because I log in and lurk off and on, maybe I should say "Hello"?
I am Tj, I started in graphite 100 years ago, then moved to colored pencil in the early 90's. I've sharpened a lot of pencils! The last couple years I've been lured away by the scent of linseed oil, spring of a canvas and the pretty brushes.....but I've never put down the pencils completely.
I just looked at your album, I had no idea colored pencils could do that! Impressive. I'm an inker from 100 years back, but have recently discovered watercolors. I hope to be doing oils in a year or two. Right now, the main thing is figuring out where to do them. My wife is understandably reluctant for me to do them in the office of our brand new home!
