CHICK ARTISTIC CREATIONS
The Art of Beverly Chick
Animal & Nature Art
Animals and Nature are very important to me. They are what I am most passionate about. Although they are the main theme and focus of my art, this is not the only thing I do.
I call myself "Chick Artistic Creations" because I do not limit myself to just one niche. How boring would it be to just create one thing all the time? That is why I have other niches such as Hand Painted Rock Animals, Celebrity Portraits, Steampunk/Victorian Style Jewelry, and Outer Space Art, all of which have their own special page on this website. I also love to create various craft items such as handmade books and refrigerator magnets. There is always something new to discover and explore in the world of art.
My Unique Art Process
Beverly is a multi-media and mixed media artist. She is technically skilled in many different mediums. She has a unique method of using various art mediums to create her paintings. Colored Pencil & Turpenoid is her favorite medium to work with. When Turpenoid (a solvent) is applied to the colored pencil, using a cotton swab, it breaks down the waxy based pencil color and creates an interesting effect that looks more like a painting than a drawing. This method is actually a combination of drawing and painting because you actually paint with a cotton swab! And it's fun too.
Over many years, she has learned the best ways to combine watercolor, acrylic and pastels with colored pencil & Turpenoid to create her own special artistic interpretation.

FREE COLORED PENCIL. LESSONS!
You can take FREE colored pencil lessons on my Facebook page, Exploring Colored Pencil. Learn how to create this flower (left) using only colored pencil & Turpenoid. Colored pencil is far more versatile than most people think, especially if you use a solvent like Tupenoid along with it. It is not a quick medium like watercolor because it usually requires layers. These lessons give people a chance to find out if they like colored pencil with Turpenoid before they sign up for my workshops.
