Original artwork in this online gallery mainly consisted of painting until 2013. Circumstances over recent years made painting difficult. At this point, dry mediums were investigated. Much of the current artwork is created in mixed media. Mainly lightfast coloured pencil. Coloured pencil is still a misunderstood medium. However the quality of the manufacturing and materials used has developed. Many Fine Art galleries in key Cities around the world, such as New York now include coloured pencil artists within their portfolio. Joe Hendry uses mainly Caran D’Ache Luminance pencils which have the highest lightfast rating currently available.
