Colored Pencils and Markers – Frog — 10 Comments

  1. Some of the members watching the live lessons bring up the different markers and paper. I will use the recommended markers/pencils on the Canson marker paper – experimenting with Strathmore 400 Marker paper. It’s a heavier paper, smooth and the results ?? I will advise. Your having fun, so this venture should be fun for me.

  2. Matt,

    You mentioned that white gouache would be used towards the end of the project. Can Brush & Pencil’s Touch-up Texture Titanium White be used, instead of the gouache?

    Thanks!

  3. Matt,
    I started with Indigo blue for the eyes and overpowered so much that none of colors I applied stood a chance… Is there a way to alter it or redo the eye? like applying gulch /opaque pain? I wish i can show you my frogs eyes for you to understad it better.

  4. Hi Matt,

    I tried downloading Video #9, but Vimeo is acting strange. When I click on the download arrow, the download box pops up, but it just sits there, not giving me the option to pick the resolution link of my choice. I removed my history files and cookies, etc, but still no go. Suggestions, or is it just Vimeo? I’m using the Chrome browser, that has never had an issue before today.

    Thank you!
