Tea Time with Markers & Colored Pencil: In-Depth Tutorial

  • Want to speed up your colored pencil work without losing any rich, vibrant color? Add markers to your creative tool box and draw this magnificent still life with help from Mardell Schuster.

    Learn how to:
    Save time by underpainting with Copic Sketch Dual Tip Markers. Markers will cover the paper completely, ensuring no specs of paper peek through. 

    Intensify bright colors and give richness to dark colors. What might take dozens of layers with colored pencils alone becomes quick work with markers! 

    Create details that pop! You'll use colored pencils over top of the marker layers, creating a smooth, stunning finish.

Using markers and colored pencils to enhance and create vivid and deeply lush colors

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 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!
