Sharpened Artist: Colored Pencil Podcast

Release Date: October 23, 2017


Topic: When to Be Creative


Points of Interest:

There’s a time to copy a reference exactly and a time to insert your own creativity—but how do you know which avenue to take?

John and Lisa discuss the common misconceptions about “creativity” in art creation. You’ll hear their thoughts on tracing, working from a reference, taking your own photos, being a copyist, and implementing a consistent approach.
