Glistening Cherries: In-Depth Tutorial

  • Is that really colored pencil? Yes! And Carmen will show you step by step how to make your cherries glisten and glow, too.

    Begin with a value study in white, then gradually add color, starting with light reds and going ever darker to recreate these plump, vivid, eye-popping bombs of glistening color.

    Carmen will show you how to isolate sections of crystal to gain accuracy. You'll learn a lot about working on black paper, creating dramatic color and light, and how to draw cut crystal with ease. And we think you'll enjoy every minute.

Love it

I am still busy with this in-depth but up to this point I have enjoyed every minute of it. I know there is a black surfaces book but wish we could have Carmen Barros create another one with still lifes on black using her techniques. She is a good teacher and I love her techniques. In general I like all in-depths and can’t wait for more. Thank you.

Bursting with berries

This is the first time I have used coloured pencils, and I think I’m hooked!!! Easy to follow instructions learning all the time. Beginning to feel confident enough to tackle my own still life. Although I am still work in progress.

Glistening Cherries

I am a beginner to colored pencil. Enjoyed doing the project.The directions for the cherries were excellent. It was my first time doing glass with colored pencil the pattern and directions a little confusing so I tried to copy what I saw in the colored picture and I’m pleased with the way it came out.
