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 and they are the main theme of my art.
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 enjoy making various craft items such as handmade books and refrigerator magnets. In the world of art, there is always something new to discover.
My Creative Process
My artistic process was developed over a period of many years. I use colored pencil with the solvent, Turpenoid; and then I combine this with various other mediums.
When Turpenoid 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 involves both drawing and painting because you actually paint with a cotton swab instead of a brush.
Years of experimentation has taught me the best ways to combine watercolor, acrylic and pastels with colored pencil & Turpenoid, resulting in my 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.
My newest painting called "Glory in the Flower" created with colored pencil & Turpenoid. It is based on the famous poem by the poet Wordworth.
"Though nothing can bring back the hour of splendor in the grass; of glory in the flower...."
The rock animal is lovely. Thank you so much.
My husband put it on the hearth of our fireplace. It looks great."

The Wolf Rock is a wonderful gift. It means a lot to me and I'll never forget it. I love the fact that Beverly Chick painted it.
