THIS IS THE LARGEST AND MOST COMPREHENSIVE, FREELY ACCESSIBLE RESOURCE ON THE INTERNET COVERING COLOURED PENCILS OF ALL TYPES, FOR BEGINNERS AND INTERMEDIATE STUDENTSThis Web site has no commercial sponsorship
This site is currently being fully re-written and many of the old pages are being modified. It is hoped that the full site will be refreshed before the end of 2017 with all the most frequently read pages of the old site available in full.The original Topics web site grew organically over a nine year period and, at one time, had nearly 250 pages of information.Growth in visitor numbers and the updated statistics that go with them provide a clear picture of what most readers want, and the most read pagesso this is the area we are going to concentrate on. This site is always a work in progress, but eventually the finished project will be posted in it’s entirety to the www.penciltopics.co.ukaddress with the old site archived here to preserve some of those dusty corners that folk may wish to refer to in odd momentsIf you are curious to see the new site developing, please use the navigation buttons at the top of the page. BUT BE AWARE many pages shown as links may be blank or incomplete
The site you see here is work in progress. The old Pencil Topics site is being re-written and revised but is still available on the old address in it’s full state. Many pages here are still to be written but the site has been posted to the Internet so that it can be fully tested before the old site is removed
JULY 2017There are at present two Topics web sites available on the Internet and Google search engines find both.The original Pencil Topics web site which first started in 2009 and which has grown over the years, is still to be found atwww.penciltopics.co.ukThe newly designed site which will contain less data and fewer pages, but be much easier to use and for me to update, is found atwww.colouredpenciltopics.co.ukThe new site ( which you see here)is still being assembled and will change as the weeks go by.Once it has been fully checked and proved to be fairly bug free, the new site will switch with the old one and appear at www.penciltopics.co.ukThe old site will appear here at colouredpenciltopics and will become the archived version containing all the old data. That old site will not be updated, but will provide an in depth resource for those who need it. It will also still contain all the old step by step exercises.The new site will have a smaller collection of updated step by step examples.
is a work in progress.If you are seeing this page, it means that you are probably looking at it on a mobile phone as this page has been designed for small screen use.If you wish to see the full Topics site in it’s original format before the new updated version is completed, please refer to the original site address atwww.penciltopics.co.ukOn the other hand, the re-build of the refreshed Topics site is currently being loaded step by step using new software onto the internet at www.colouredpenciltopics.co.ukbut only in larger screen (Tablet, Laptop or PC/Apple desktop format)I expect the full site to be rebuilt for reading on full sized screens before the end of 2017.The re-design of the pages for smaller screen (mobile) use will be a much larger task and, to be honest, the quality of images and the ability to browse the site of 150 plus pages will be hardly worth the effort for the few people who will use it. Topics needs to be seen on a larger screen than a mobile phone to get the benefit.So……..I am not currently planning to develop the mobile screen version unless someone is prepared to pay loads of money for my time in doing it …. and that seems unlikely. However, plans may change !
