I just found out about the Colored Pencil Society of America this weekend. The CPSA has an exhibit at Quiet Water’s Park in Annapolis. I had a chance to visit the exhibit and was very inspired. The artists have beautiful artwork on display. Colored pencils are know for their lushness of color and it is very evident in the artwork in the exhibit.

Some of the artist use various papers and/or add other types of media to their artwork.
