Blooming Roses

Beautiful colours.

They've certainly worked well for you Margaret, another gorgeous drawing.

Always Look for your super pencil artwork. Never disappointed !!

Wow, Margaret, they look fantastic!

Blooming heck they are beautiful Margaret!! Lovely rich colours. Your flowers just go from strength to strength.

Beautiful flowers and super strong composition, Margaret. Works really well

Love that shade of pink Margaret. Beautifully painted. Was wondering whether to buy some Arteza pencils, they are so cheap on Amazon. Do they blend as easily as pastel pencils Margaret. Love your leaves. Are those done with Arteza pencils?

Beautiful work, Margaret.

Many thanks Emma, Maureen, Alan, Richard, Gudrun, Mia, Carolyn and Thalia, your kind words are really appreciated. Carole, thanks so much for your comments. I bought my Arteza directly from the firm and they cost £27.99 and free postage for 72!!! It's amazing value really and they are cheaper than Amazon. I usually like to blend with Zest It but when I tried this on a leaf it didn't seem to work well but when blending the colours together they worked well and I used a white pencil to burnish the flowers and that was good. I now love to use white pastelmat as that really grabs the colours and also it lets you put light colours over dark. My favourites are Faber Castell polychromos but I do use Derwent Coloursoft too. I haven't done much work in pastel and only have a small set of these, I find them too messy! Hope this helps you to decide on your purchase. One more thing I find strange is that Arteza don't sell single colours, only sets, which is disappointing as you definitely use more of some colours than others. Ellen, many thanks for your kind words.

Beautiful painting of complicated flowers well done Margaret

They are certainly blooming, Margaret. Gorgeous flowers and great leaves, and that pink is a real eye-catcher. Bri

Thank you so much for all that information Margaret. Will definitely buy me but have to wait ‘TIL I get home as I’m in Spain for another couple of weeks. Will let you know when I buy them what I think of them. Thanks again Margaret.

Absolutely gorgeous Margaret.

Great roses and composition, love the colours, Margaret.

Superb work Margaret.

Many thanks all of you, your lovely comments are really encouraging.

I see them as gorgeous roses Margaret.

I missed this at the time, beautifully done Margaret!

Hang on Studio Wall

9"x12" Coloured Pencil on Pastelmat. My roses look more like Peonies to me lol!!!! I used some new Arteza pencils for this and found them OK, some nice colours in the box, only time will tell.

About the Artist
Margaret Beynon

March 2019 I am self taught, reading from books and watching dvd's and of course YouTube. Watercolour painting was my first love and then I moved on to coloured pencils which I like very much. I have just started using acrylics which are a very different medium but so far I'm enjoying using them…
