Color so bright you can almost feel the sun shining!

Have you ever wanted to learn how to create a colored pencil flower so super-saturated and vibrant that it almost seems to glow? Learn how, right from home.

There is so much packed into this In-Depth

Discover how to get vibrancy, contrast, and depth, how to build layers, and use OMS effortlessly while you create that smooth, dreamy background and brilliantly intense day lily. Lori Seward guides you every step of the way.

You'll learn how to:

  • Create an intense lighting effect
  • Reproduce value contrasts
  • Use solvent to create smooth, rich color

Say bye-bye to that grainy look, and hello to color

So much to learn... like when to use a light pressure and when to go heavy, when to burnish and when to let the paper surface show through, how to add a last bit of vivid brightness to make colors extra brilliant, and how to “mush” colors together with a White colored pencil.

It’s all inside, and you end up with a yummy drawing as a reward for all that fun skill-building you’ve done!

About The Author: Pursuing a lifelong passion of being a successful artist, Lori Seward works in multiple mediums with colored pencil as one of her favorites. Lori has exhibited in solo and group shows and has drawings included in CP Treasures and CP Hidden Treasures. She lives and works out of her studio in Kentucky.

About In-Depth Tutorials: Whether you are new to drawing animals in colored pencil or a seasoned artist, you will gain invaluable insight, practice, and experience from this project. Our In-Depth tutorials are all about preparing yourself for future wins, while also creating a beautiful piece of artwork.

Created by master colored pencil artists, each In-Depth tutorial features detailed steps and focuses on teaching you why and not just how the artist applies their technique. No book comes close to the amount of instruction in an In-Depth tutorial. Art instruction books typically contain 4-6 steps per demo. That just scratches the surface! With large images and 24 or more bite-sized steps, In-Depth tutorials truly show you exactly how the artist works, making it easy and stress-free to learn new colored pencil techniques and achieve success.

Note: Drawing paper and pencils not included. See images for complete supply list. Polychromos pencil name changes can be found here

Stunning result

I very much enjoy the ‘in depth’ tutorials. This one did jump about a lot from section to section which seemed unnecessary and a few areas were left out. However I am extremely pleased with my piece which I am yet to completely finish but still looks good.

Drama Queen: In Depth Coloured Pencil Tutorial

I thoroughly enjoyed this project. Though I did have trouble with the background, then I mucked up the leaves (they are a bit skinny) So in the finish I used Pan Pastels to smooth out the background. I have also lost definition on the tips of stamens, but I know where I went wrong there Thank you for sharing this class, I have definitely learned new methods of layering colour

Just OK. I had trouble understanding what part of the picture to work on from the descriptions given in the tutorial. Also (no fault of the tutorial) I was not happy with my blending of the pencils to make it look more painterly. I need more work on that. Over all though, it was a lot of fun. Thank you!

Great project - needs a little clarification

I enjoyed working with the colors that this project required. It would be easier if the parts of the the reference photo were lettered or numbered or otherwise identified. I know about plant parts, but I couldn’t figure out what she was referring to when she identified the “sepal.” Also I found it difficult to follow the background directions - where exactly on the top does the color go? As a result, my background doesn’t look like hers, but that’s ok.
