      About In-Depth Tutorials:

      Created by master colored pencil artists, each In-Depth tutorial features 30+ steps and focuses on teaching you why and not just how the artist applies their technique. No book or video 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 30 or more steps, In-Depth tutorials truly show you exactly how the artist works, making it easy to truly learn new colored pencil techniques and achieve success.

      Note: Drawing paper not included. See list of supplies needed in images.

      Pretty, but hard to do in CP

      I really looked forward to this lovely tutorial. Such a nice project. However, my first impression is, I don't have the same kind of colored pencils, so color matching is very tedious. Second, I concluded it takes way too long to do a CP background and subject, and I just am not a fan of the results of layering CP. I don't feel I can get enough contrast and depth. It was a learning experience, having only started using CP last summer but would not attempt another drawing of this type.

      Swallow Butterfly

      I spent quite a bit of time on tracing the butterfly, and then started work on the blurred background. It was very difficult to do and ruined the picture. Very disappointed. Could have used more info on how to do background.

      Disapointed

      I was very excited to begin this tutorial. I've been drawing in colored pencil for some months now, so I felt I could easily handle this. I found the instruction for the background to be unclear and NOT "in-depth" enough. Not enough explanation on how the do the layers. How many layers for each color? etc. Very frustrating as I had never done this type of background. It ended up looking horrible and I pitched it. Very frustrated.
