Easter Cursive Text And Egg

This Easter graphic was drawn by hand and colored in with metallic colored pencils and a silver crayon.

First I drew out the Easter cursive text and egg with a pencil.

I do not eat eggs, but I do like to draw pictures of these for Easter.

I used a silver metallic pencil to color in the background behind the Easter cursive text and striped egg.

Once I finished shading in the Easter text with a pencil, I went over it with a gold colored pencil so the letters would shine. Also, a pink metallic colored pencil was used on several stripes of the egg, and gold and silver and silver colored pencils were used to shade in the other stripes.

A silver crayon went over the silver colored pencil background to create a shiny image.

Creating A Shamrock Within A Shamrock Design

The shamrock within a ¬†shamrock design is verdant and lush for Saint Patrick’s Day.

This Saint Patrick’s Day composition consists of a shamrock within a shamrock design. Colored pencils are entertaining for creating original holiday themed designs, so grab a piece of paper and allow the imagination to traverse a bit. Colored pencil drawing is also a form of relaxation, and quite economical as well.

The shamrock design begins with a small golden green shamrock drawn within a slightly larger light green shamrock.
The optical illusion of shamrocks on top of shamrocks continues by using different shades of metallic green colored pencils to frame each shamrock with a larger one until the page is filled.
Bluish green, light green, golden green and dark green colored pencils were used to create the shamrock design.
The larger green shamrock was created by burnishing a light green and metallic gold colored pencils.
The shamrock design was finished off with a darker green shamrock expanding beyond the edges of the paper.

The video documents the creation of the shamrock design from start to finish.


Enhancing The Colors Of The Heart Painting

I enhanced the colors of my painting by making the background
I enhanced the colors of my painting by creating a pastel rose background.
I repainted the light pink background with a rose pastel paint.

After this I allowed the background to dry for a few day and then I repainted the center of the heart with a habanero orange hue of paint.


Painting hearts is the perfect Valentine’s Day inspired art project, or just an everyday for people who enjoy shades of red and pink.
