Gary Greene has been a full-time artist since 1967. After working for 15 years in mainstream fine art media, he accidentally came across a book on colored pencil in 1983. “It was an epiphany!” he says. Greene is the author of four books and videos on colored pencil techniques, including No Experience Required: Colored and Watercolor Pencil (North Light Books, 2005). He has conducted workshops, demonstrations and lectures internationally, won numerous awards for his colored pencil paintings and is a co-founder and the only 15-year Signature Member of the Colored Pencil Society of America.
To read Greene’s feature on using colored pencil, “Uptight is Alright,” see the November 2008 issue of The Artist’s Magazine. Here is some art that didn’t appear in the feature.
