The Colored Pencil Course – Portrait Drawing Part 3 — 9 Comments

    • Hi Christina,

      You can generally follow the same approach with the exception of using the colorless blender (Turpenoid will behave better with the oil-based pencils). The oil-based pencils will still layer, but it may be best to establish the values from the start, rather than build them up while mixing the skin tones. In other words, it may be best to create an “underpainting” with a dark, but warm color like Walnut Brown. Then, layer tones that will mix as skin tones over the top. A mixture of red, yellow, browns, and white should do the trick.

  1. Thank you. Will you be doing any further lessons using these pencils? It would help to see the difference in the behaviour to build up the colour.

  2. I am enjoying the method of presentaion in the video segments. I learn by frequent reviewing of the visual presentation. Right now, I am relearning my ways of working.
