Hi Greg,

This is beautiful. Is this colored pencil? I'm curious because I would love to add color to some of my house portraits, but I haven't quite got the hang of watercolor yet...pencils, I can do :)

Carol...
Yes, this one is colored pencil.

I would think watercolor would be an easy way to add some subtle color to your work.

With some of the others....
I have been adding color to these graphite sketches using photoshop. I like the result... It looks like a cross between colored pencil and watercolor.

I use adobe illustrator and photoshop extensively in my daily work as an artist. It give me a little more creative outlet using those programs.

Thanks for the insight! Yes, I definitely need to play around with some watercolor on my house portraits.

Interesting to know you have used photoshop to add color to some of your sketches as well. I like the result, too...subtle, but really adds some life to them.
