Jesse Lane is an American colored pencil artist living in the Woodlands, Texas. Jesse is always looking for the easily missed moments of everyday life. Using light and composition, he works to design and capture the emotion of that instant. He paints the images…with colored pencil, applying layer upon layer, blending them to create the smoothness and richness of an oil painting. His inspiration comes from the Renaissance painter Caravaggio.
Each piece takes 150-200 hours to complete. Most of his drawings showcase the human form, and when Jesse's not drawing, he's usually at the gym. Jesse has a degree in Visualization from Texas A&M University. He's also studied art in Italy at the Santa Chiara Study Center in Castiglion Fiorentiono. He's a member of the Colored Pencil Society of America, the Pencil Art Society, the International Guild of Realism, the Portrait Society of America and Allied Artists of America. "The fact that this is a colored-pencil piece is just incredible! The Artist is truly a Master of the medium," says Terry Stanley, awards juror for the Richeson75 International Figure/Portrait Competition.
