I liked this tutorial and was glad to see it. Using markers and colored pencils is a technique I’ve used in my classroom for quite a while. But it’s a technique not naturally arrived at if you are buying your media, as many students can afford only a limited amount of colored pencils and markers. I think the key is that this combination allows for inventing colors! That’s an awesome discovery.
I have not used it yet. I have looked through it and am axious to get started.. I ordered markers ahead of time but then when the tut came it said markers with one brush end so I had to order some of those instead. wish I had known that first.. but it looks like fun and now I have Markers too....
I am no artist but enjoy looking at fabulous art and the process behind it! Congrats on the publication!
I can't express how much I am enjoying this In Depth Tutorial!!! I have always admired Mardell Schuster's talent and was thrilled to try the tutorial. I bought the required paper and markers...thought I'd burst before they got here. I have loved every bit of this process. I will post a picture when the piece is finished. I'm very happy with the progress so far. Recommend to everyone! Thanks Ann for sponsoring it and Mardell for taking the time to create it!
I really love the talent of Mardell Schuster and couldn't wait to try out her technique on some favorite items of my own. The only difference for me is that I used Prismacolor markers and Prismacolor pencils throughout. I completed the attached work as an experiment in textures just to see how the marker/pencil combo would work in each. I began with the grapes and practically hyper-ventilated I was so excited with the result. It was really a fun adventure.
