In the spring, there are always several shows
that I manage to enter. The CPSA (colored pencil
society of America) show deadline is March 31. I
decided I would try to finish this drawing of this
rhino in time.
I took this photo at the San Diego Zoo a couple of
years ago. The CPSA has been having issues with
artists using other people's photos as references for
their work. It has been the subject of a great deal of
discussion. I don't ever have that problem: I take so
many photographs, I will never run out of subject
You can look up the CPSA website, and see some of the
fine work that artists submit. There is some really
amazing stuff. I hope this rhino will get to join the ranks.
