Shawn Falchetti has been working with colored pencils for 14 years. In 2004, he joined the Colored Pencil Society of America, and his works have appeared in CPSA Explore This!, the CPSA Annual International Exhibitions, North Light Books Strokes of Genius series, Colored Pencil Magazine, and the Artist's Magazine.
The relationship between light and mood has always fascinated me. There’s an inherent drama to a high contrast figure bathed in sunlight, while a quiet, diffused interior has a lazy, colorful atmosphere which suggests what’s behind the scenes has a whole life of its own. I find what's behind the scenes and tucked into the shadows is far more interesting than what routinely gets the spotlight. Because of this, many of my figures are swathed in dim lighting, making you look a little more closely to see what’s going on. This helps convey the mood and feel of the moment, and give the viewer some insight into the personalities of the figures who appear in my works.
