PLEASE READ THIS FIRST: When I began this list of coloured pencil artists, my intention was to provide illustrations of the works of Redbubble Coloured Pencil artists. Recently, many have started using the copy-protection facility provided by Redbubble, so I am unable to add illustrations when this happens … just thought I’d mention, in case anyone was hurt that I’d left them out.
There are some absolutely wonderful coloured pencil artists on Redbubble. I have only found a small number of them, but I’m sure there are many more out there and I would really appreciate it if anyone could name some more for me please.
Some artists on my list use coloured pencils all the time, whilst others use them occasionally or as part of a mixed medium painting.
One of the main reasons I joined Redbubble was because I saw the coloured pencil art of Penny Edwardes
Since then I have discovered lots more coloured pencil artists as well and here is a list of them with clickable links to their pages:
I AM UNABLE AT PRESENT TO SHOW DELABARRA’S WORK AS HIS IMAGES ARE IN GIF FORMAT, WHICH WILL NOT SHOW.
AS WITH DELABARRA’S WORK I AM UNABLE AT PRESENT TO SHOW ONE OF SEAN’S PICTURES, AS HIS IMAGES ARE IN GIF FORMAT, WHICH WILL NOT SHOW. i STRONGLY ADVICE EVERYONE TO GO TAKE A LOOK THOUGH!
KARSTEN IS ANOTHER ARTIST WHO UPLOADS GIF IMAGES, SO I CAN’T INCLUDE A PICTURE, BUT PLEASE DO GO TO LOOK AT HIS WORK AS IT IS EXCELLENT.
I’m unable to show a drawing by synthpaintann because of her security settings, but do take a look at her portfolio.
Many artists still look down their noses at coloured pencils, seeing them as a stepping stone towards painting. Others are moving from paints to coloured pencils, or using them for inclusion in mixed media paintings. Many artists, such as dawndavies, do occasional coloured pencil drawings to add to their portfolios. I’m starting to get hooked myself.
If anyone knows of any other coloured pencil artists, I’d love to see their work please.
