Copperfield Art

Animal portraits


I used coloured pencils as a child but had never given them a thought as an adult until I saw a wonderful portrait done by a friend of mine in America - it inspired me to have a go.  Whilst doing some gardening I discovered quite a gathering of snails behind an old wooden trough - as I was moving them I realised how pretty their shells were and decided to make one of them the subject of my first coloured pencil drawing.  

For Christmas the same friend sent me an extensive set of Prisma coloured pencils which are far nicer to use than the ones I had bought - there are so many colours to choose from that I thought I'd experiment with purple sheep!!
