Fugitive colors


For those of you who create art yourselves, I wanted to pass on a good blog post I found by Brigit O'Connor. She discusses the use of fugitive colors in art. Her focus is on watercolor paintings, but colored pencils use lightfastness ratings as well. 

So here is the link to this informative and cautionary tale. It is a quick read that will serve you well if you don't know, or are unaware of these qualities. 

In the past I have used dyes, which are concentrated watercolors, combined with colored pencils. I have not noticed any significant fading or loss of vibrancy, especially when framed in combination with conservation glass. Storing and displaying pieces out of sunlight is good advice for any artwork.
