Art, process and design blog of an aspiring industrial designer.


Elizabeth Peyton and David Hockney are artists who both use pencil crayon really, really well.  And that’s super interesting to me, because its not something you see a lot in fancy art and its extremely affordable and accessible.

David Hockney: here // here // here

Notice how Hockney uses the pencil crayon more in a general-shading way, whereas Peyton uses the lines of the pencil crayon really effectively to show planes and volume and direction.  Both of them mix and layer colors so well, which add such a sense of detail and depth to the pieces.  I find with the colors and the texture of the pencil crayon, each of the pieces have a hardness and a sense of defined shape, but also a softness in their layering, the shades used and the way the drawings often fade into the background.

Anyway, enjoy! Back to studying..
