Kolours - Coloured Pencils

Coloured Pencils are not just for children anymore, they aren’t even just for adults who casually doodle or colour in anymore. Coloured Pencils have become a professional artists tool thanks to a few manufacturers who now produce lightfast, highly pigmented gorgeous coloured pencils. Other companies are now making papers and other supports specifically for the coloured pencil artist, and the artwork that is being created today is phenomenal! To view some amazing coloured pencil artists, please visit the Austrailan Society of Coloured Pencil Artists,  the Coloured Pencil Society of America, and the UK Coloured Pencil Society.
