Colored Pencils
Find colors that blend well. Hint: they are usually next to each other on the color wheel!
1
Gradually increase your pencil pressure to create darker colors. Too hard and you can’t layer.
2
Light pressure allows for more layers. More layers lets you move between colors and shades.
3
Begin with the lightest (or darkest if you wish) color and gradually move to the next color.
4
Take two different colors, & apply light pressure. Alternate colors until you get the color you want
5
To make a shadow begin with the lightest color and gradually add layers of your darker colors.
6
Add a second darker layer. Apply light pressure! Harder pressure limits the amnt of layers possible.
7
A third, and so on! Layer throughout the whole shape to create a round/full shadow!
8
Combination of crosshatching + layering two different shades of blue!
