  7. Guess, my eyes are playing tricks on me. Didn’t remember seeing this page before. Glad I found it though. I love using color pencils. These are very well done Leslie. 🙂

    • Hi Emily! These took forever to do and they are all smaller than I paint. I would like to be more loose with them but have not sat down to play with colored pencil for awhile. I do like the medium, though. I used to love to color as a child. I feel that hit everytime I begin something in colored pencil. Thank you for the comment! 🙂

  8. It is hard to choose a favourite here,
    and so I will just compliment you for
    all of them… Thank you for offering
    such a wonderful feast of art…

  9. Wow, I love colored pencil, and use them myself. Nice job! I just started pastels again and love them, also. Almost like colored pencil, but less restricting.

    • Thank you, Cheryl. I am horrible with pastels but admire those who can use them with seemingly little effort. I must setaside some time to use mycolored pencils again. Thank you for the visit and the comment!

  10. Beautiful artworks! Amazing.

    • It is great to receive a comment, here, on this page. I have not worked in colored pencil for ages due to time spent with my watercolors and classes. Thank you so much!

  11. Leslie – Can you tell me again the brand of color pencils to purchase? I know it started with a “P” but I didn’t write it down. You also said they were expensive. Please let me know and thanks!

    • Prismacolor. That is the brand that I use. I tried one other brand and was not as satisfied. The colored pencil artists that I have met all use Prismacolor. They are expensive. They come in regular, stick and verithin forms. I started with a set of 48 and it grew from there.

  12. Thank you. Got em!
