    Lovely, warm, and homespun!

    In this rustic still life from Mandy Peltier, you’ll use sanded paper to create a basket of farm-fresh eggs and bright violets. Have fun mastering a variety of different textures: metal, wood, eggshell, soft flower petals — and even semi-transparent cloth — all in one project!

    Working on sanded paper is a fun and different approach to using colored pencil and it gives your artwork a soft look with a bit of texture; just perfect for creating a feeling of home and nostalgia. It's also a very forgiving surface, so goofs are never really goofs. You can fix anything!

    Learn how to:
    • Add highlights over other colors
    • work on sanded paper
    • create a variety of soft and hard textures
    • incorporate Brush and Pencil products into your work

I didn't realize this was to be done on sandpaper. I gave up after trying to draw the linen/burlap thing. I don't like to draw on sandpaper. This was a waste. The instructions expected you to know exactly what the artist was thinking in how to draw this.
