I was browsing through the exhibition catalog of the National Gallery of Art’s Jan Lievens show today. Made a quick drawing after the wonderful “tronie” Man with a Beret. I used colored pencils. How I’ve changed. I used to be such a snob. I didn’t think that colored pencils were a “serious” medium. Now I love them.
I’ve grown. Nowadays my attitude is, “if you can draw with it, how wonderful.” I love drawing. Whatever you can capture ideas with is a “serious” medium.
