Arlene Steinberg is a renowned American colored pencil artist. Arlene’s focus is on the color and light found in everyday objects. At first glance her work appears to be realism or photo-realism. Upon closer inspection, it becomes obvious Arlene accurately draws her objects, while manipulating color and light to transcend her art beyond realism. Using mostly Stonehenge paper, Arlene developed a technique of layering complementary colors to enrich her shadows. With multiple colors and numerous layers, she creates brilliant rich hues that have become her signature style.
In 2008, North Light Books published Arlene’s book Masterful Color. It is now in its second printing and is available in paperback and on e-readers. In addition, The Artist’s Magazine, Southwest Art, American Artist, American Artist Drawing Magazine and other publications have featured artwork and articles about her methods. In 2011, North Light Books published her artwork in their book, Strokes of Genius 4. Arlene has received numerous awards in national exhibitions, and galleries and museums across the United States have featured her artwork.
