Those plump blueberries are the stars – but what about that brilliant bokeh background?

About The Author:
For Gretchen Parker, colored pencil is the only artistic medium that ever clicked, as extreme detail flowed out her pencil tip. She has written extensively about colored pencil techniques. Her work has been featured in many publications and hung in several galleries. She has written the well-reviewed and popular CP Surfaces: Drafting Film for annkullberg.com. Gretchen teaches often via Zoom or the kitchen table.

Why an In-Depth tutorial?

A tutorial can be so useful in so many ways. A tutorial teaches you the author's methods. And also obviously, when you draw along with a tutorial, you learn by doing, which is much more powerful than learning by watching alone.

But even more importantly, a step by step teaches you how to break down complicated subjects into small, achievable steps, learning how to look at a reference photo with an artist’s eye, analyzing where and how to start, and which details to leave in and which to leave out. It's an important skill to learn and important for any colored pencil artist's success.

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

Frustration

I had a hard time with this one - I couldn’t see the reference photo clearly through the drafting film - maybe that’s because I used DuraLar. I had a very difficult time blending with a paper stump. Finally gave up.

We'd be happy to exchange this tutorial for another In-Depth, if you'd like? You can view all of our In-Depths at this link: https://annkullberg.com/collections/in-depth-project-kits. Or, we're also happy to refund your purchase - just let me know your preference. Gretchen will also be teaching her No Fail Film Drawings! Jelly Bean class again very soon on the many different tricks and tips she has up her sleeve for using drafting film, including blending with paper stumps.
