I did this for my home. The names on list are all family and friends. I hang this in my home every year and always say i'm going to do another! I had to take this picture through the glass of the frame so it looks a little fuzzier than in life.
Randall: Your work is absolutely fantastic! Your technique is masterful. I just recently found your work through the discussion section of the site. I admire your attention to detail and realism. I too do color pencil paintings. I almost exclusively use Verithin Prismacolor pencils. I do use an alternative surface. I paint on polyester Dura-Lar film that has a matte surface on both sides. This allows application of color to both sides that allows for nice control of color. At your convenience, I would certainly welcome your comments on the work that I have posted in my portfolio on this site. I start with a light graphite drawing that I then make even lighter with a kneaded eraser. Then I begain adding color. Again I want to say how impressed I am with your work. Best regards.
