Colored Pencil Drawings

This series of Tom's drawings are all Prismacolor colored pencil on smooth bristol board, done in studio. This is a new medium for Tom upon retiring from his industrial design career. The over 200 colors available greatly expand the possibilities of the pencil as a medium, in comparison to his life-long use of graphite pencil for black and white plein air drawing expression.
