Sharpened Artist: Colored Pencil Podcast

Release Date: May 30, 2016

 Topic: Interview with Jen Elslager

 Points of Interest:

Meet Jen Elslager, an artist who made the transition from using adult coloring books to creating her own colored pencil work in just one short year! Jen started with adult coloring books as a way to connect with her artist father, and tells us how she got a great introduction to colored pencil techniques (shading, color theory, etc.) in the process. Now dabbling in professional-grade supplies and techniques after a year, Jen’s journey is far from over.
