How do you make colors pop on black paper?

Working on black paper can be challenging since colors don’t always look as vivid as those applied on lighter surfaces. The main reason is the pencils themselves. Since colored pencils are transparent, when applied over a dark surface the color of the paper will show through, causing the hues to appear duller and less intense.

In this class, you will discover how to use black paper to your advantage. You will learn how to select the right subject matter, what paper gives you the best results, why you need an underpainting, and the best pencil colors to use. Understanding these basic principles...

    Good quick class

    Good to know the Inktense pencils worked so well as underpainting on sanded paper! Glad I took this class.

    Black paper with Carmen

    Wonderful class, I learned so much! Despite being totally unprepared -- a lot going on, I hadn't downloaded the list or drawing aids -- and lacking tech literacy -- was able to log on, do a quick sketch from Carmen's line drawing, and wing it. Even though I didn't have some of the colors, the concept was easily understood and translated to my drawing.
