This month's art challenge at the Colored Pencil Magazine is #1302 "Doorknob" from a photo by Michael A. Kechula (his link will take you to his site). When I first saw the photo, I was far from charmed ... it was of a badly painted door, frame, and doorknob. First I thought of the doorknob from Disney's "Alice in Wonderland" ... but since Disney had already done that ... it was out. Then I looked at the photo again and was INSPIRED! Here is the colored pencil illustration from that inspiration that I finally completed today ....
"Reflections of an Art Studio Doorknob"
I began this illustration on January 26, 2013 and finished it today, January 30, 2013 ... and while I was working on it I also scanned the progress to share with you .....
Now, if you would like to see the work in progress set to music, just click on this YouTube link to be taken to my slideshow video titled "Reflections of an Art Studio Doorknob"!
The finished size of this piece is 8.5" x 8.75", was done on Strathmore Bristal smooth paper using colored pencils (Prisma Verithins, Lyra Rembrandt, and Lyra Rembrandt skin tones colored pencils) and artist marker pens.
I hope you like what I have done and enjoy the slideshow (if you watch it)!
