Coloured pencil art is rapidly experiencing a whole new level of appreciation in the art world. I'm here to show you how fresh and innovative colour pencil art can be! While coloured pencils were once considered to be primarily for kids, throughout the years they have been steadily gaining respect amongst artists, galleries, and collectors. Artists are exploring the creative potential of this art-making medium, while art collectors and enthusiasts are marvelling at their output!

Artist-quality coloured pencils are light-resistant or lightfast. They can be sharpened to a fine point to allow for exquisite detail. But this is where it gets even better - the colours can be easily blended together in endless combinations to create even more shades, tints and hues. You can basically draw anything with coloured pencils that you would be able to depict with paint. Coloured pencil art can easily rival paintings in luminosity and depth of colour!
