When you look at one of Ken Woodworth's brightly colored paintings for the first time, it's hard to tell just how he achieved such intensity. He doesn't use pastels or acrylics, nor does he use watercolors or oils. The calm and quiet Lodi artist creates intricate, flawless paintings with layer upon layer of colored pencils.

His craft of painting what he calls photo-realistic surrealism sprouts from a lifetime of creating black and white pencil drawings. When he first started, he drew animals and large, detailed portraits of decorated Native Americans, drawings that nearly turned the entire white paper gray with pencil lines, shading and details.
