• Colored Pencils 16.02.2014 Comments Off on New Colored Pencil Tutorial

    This is a larger painting but the technique is the same.  It was fun to paint with brighter colors and use the value of the paper to control the intensity. Available from my website.

    11 pages; 15 color images, 1 line drawing.  The format of this tutorial is a little different as I have not done step-by-step images for each blossom. There are too many. Each blossom has a color photo with instructions written next to it so that you can work from  it.

    Paper: Black Stonehenge, un-textured side. I cut mine 16×20 to match the mat size, but a smaller size would also work.
