Stix and Canals

Recently I was introduced to Prismacolor Art Stix by artist Sharon Carson. The Art Stix are woodless colored pencils. Sharon does beautiful landscape paintings, and starts with outdoor sketches done with Art Stix. (I guess you don't need to put an 's' at the end if the word ends in 'x'.) So I have started using the sticks. They don't quite match pastels, but on some occasions might beat hauling a lot of other stuff around. I will get back to the woods again, but I needed to think about what I am going to do there a bit more. Sharon's husband Ed Carson is also a fascinating artist.

Oooo!... I like the look of these stix! I've noticed that you make a several media look good.

Sharon Carson's oil landscapes are fascinating.
