Peaches: In-Depth Tutorial

  • Did you know you can...

    • Make your artwork completely erasable?
    • Add as many layers as you like?
    • Blend colors without the use of solvents?

    Learn how, by creating luscious Peaches!

    Let Mandy show you, in clear step-by-step fashion, how to use Brush & Pencil products to create this luscious basket of ripe peaches. Easily conquer difficult textures like fuzzy soft peach skin and rough wood grain. Discover how simple it is to create realistic wicker, using a negative-space approach. And most important of all: learn how to perfectly blend colors together. Blending is the magic key, and Mandy can show you how!

    You’ll work on UArt sanded paper, and start with an underpainting to nail down the correct values right from the start. Then you’ll learn to understand color (would you believe there’s Indigo Blue on those peaches?) while creating a framable work of art.

It was great. I am a new colored pencil artist and have not been able to find any teachers in my city. This tutorial showed me many new things and was easy to understand. I'm sure when I finish it I will be looking to order more

peaches: In depth Tutorial

I have received the Tutorial, thank you. I have had to order some of the materials from the US as they are unavailable here so I haven't started the project yet. I am looking forward to receiving the items ordered so that I can make a start. Will let you know how I get on with it.

Peaches & Blending

I am not finished with the picture yet because I had to order the powered blender. The other blenders I have don't work well on the UArt papers. It would be helpful to have some brief instructions on using the blender, since it seems to be a new product and is difficult to find. Blick was the only option I found. Otherwise I like the subject matter and the step by step instructions.


Excellent tutorial on how to use Powder Blender

I’ve experimented with the Brush and Pencil products previously without much luck. There is definitely a learning curve in working with powder blender. Thanks to Mandy’s tutorial, I’m beginning to understand how to use the product. You need to work on a sanded surface with oil-based pencils especially during the first layers. Mandy explains when and how to use the powder blender, how to work with the Sofft applicators and when to apply the textured fixative to achieve the best results.
