|June 2015 Coloured Pencil Topics by Peter Weatherill
Jaap Oudes has worked his entire artistic life mainly with pencil.
Jaap Oudes is certainly not the only artist who has used pencil as material. An interesting search on the web revealed that, for example, artists like Jackson Pollock and David Hockney have made beautiful work with coloured pencil.
Worldwide there are Pencil Societies, who support coloured pencil artists. They are actif in organizing exhibitions, workshops, providing all sorts of pencil information, awards. The pencilartsociety
website for example is a source of information for those who like to know more about art created with (coloured) pencil, graphite pencil, conté, watersoluble pencil. This society has subsections all over the world, United States, Uk, Denmark, France, Japan, Australia.
While searching the web we came in contact with Peter Weatherill, a passionate lover of pencil art. On his website various topics can be found about pencil art. Peter was very enthousiastic about the work of Jaap Oudes. He has placed a nice article about Jaap's work on his website next to the topics about David Hockney and Jackson Pollock.
In short, a site for hours of reading. For reading the article about Jaap please visit the following link "Coloured Art History"
