Bursting with Berries: In-Depth Tutorial

  • This new In-Depth lesson defies everything you know about CP!

    Would you believe these luscious berries were drawn with just SIX colored pencils

    That's right - you'll learn how to create your own range of hues with just 6 Polychromos - red, yellow, blue, brown, white and black. Ekaterina's secret to achieving insanely realistic, vibrant paintings is a secret no more - you can make stunning colored pencil art that you'll want to frame and display proudly - with only a handful of supplies!

    The clear instruction will guide you from start to finish with 32 step by step images. Bursting with Berries is a great way to try out Faber-Castell Polychromos without having to invest in a whole set.

    What you'll learn
    Mixing and Creating Colors: The magic of Ekaterina's technique lies in how she layers primary colors to achieve richly colored berries that are just dripping with maximum realism. 

    Wood Grain: You will use all 6 colors to create the smooth wooden bowl and the wooden table it sits upon. Ekaterina simplifies the process of achieving natural wood grains. You won't believe how easy it is!  

    Blurred Vignette Background: This background method really draws all the attention to your delicious looking bowl of berries and makes you want to just reach out and take a bite! 

    Draw... Frame... Bask in your talent!

A bit disappointing

Sorry this is late; my husband has been ill. While decent, I am not thrilled with this 'in-depth' tutorial. Techniques shown were randomly in-depth but rather glossed over in parts. I am a primarily a portrait artist and was expecting more tips for transitioning to still life. It's ok. I was just expecting more.

Bursting with Berries

I was intrigued that this drawing could be done with only six colors. I enjoyed this tutorial very much and its been a good learning process for me. I would highly recommend this tutorial.

Bursting Berries

Enjoyed the kit. Found that I added more colors to achieve results closer to kit. Highly recommend it. Will send my drawing in progress. Kathy Christner

Very good

great, this is different from most in that only primary colours are used, so it is a bit more challenging and you learn more. Would love to see a similar tutorial on a variety of green leaves, as greens are very difficult to get right for many botanical artists
