A red, blue and yellow colored pencil held in a silver pitcher provides the perfect introduction to drawing reflections and layering multiple colors to achieve depth and rich pigment.
Plus this Jumpstart is the perfect introduction to using a sanded surface - Pastelbord. With the highly textured Pastelbord, you'll discover the fun of seeing light colors pop when layered right on top of dark colors to achieve shiny reflections and highlights.
Don't be deceived by the simple nature of this reference photo. Ranjini will walk you through an intermediate level study of rendering metal on a unique, forgiving surface.
I remember feeling so frustrated and insecure when I first started drawing with colored pencil because there was so much I didn't know. I so wish there had been a basic colored pencil handbook that caught me up to speed quickly.
That's what the Jumpstart Jetpack Handbook is! It covers all the basics you need to know about pencils, drawing papers, impressed line, blending, burnishing and so much more. Add it to your order to get a jump on colored pencil in a hurry!
This was a real challenge for me! I have been wanting to try drawing something with chrome in it and this really helped me to select the right color and technique to use! I loved working on this project!!
