Now finally I have found my own photographic images that are worthy to be my voice to the ART WORLD!   100% COLOR PENCIL?All my art pieces that I draw for the Color Pencil Society of America are 100% color pencils. I must say I enjoy using Prismacolor Soft Core pencils on all my art projects, I always get the desired results I need. When asked if I use solvents to blend my colors, I reply no! When asked if I have found something new to blend my colors and still create lots of layers, I say Yes! I have started to use the Icarus Board designed by a fellow CP artist Ester Roi. But who knows one day I may venture out of my comfort zone and use other tools.
