Tea Time with Markers & Colored Pencil: In-Depth Tutorial

  • Want to speed up your colored pencil work without losing any rich, vibrant color? Add markers to your creative tool box and draw this magnificent still life with help from Mardell Schuster.

    Learn how to:
    Save time by underpainting with Copic Sketch Dual Tip Markers. Markers will cover the paper completely, ensuring no specs of paper peek through. 

    Intensify bright colors and give richness to dark colors. What might take dozens of layers with colored pencils alone becomes quick work with markers! 

    Create details that pop! You'll use colored pencils over top of the marker layers, creating a smooth, stunning finish.

I can't express how much I am enjoying this In Depth Tutorial!!! I have always admired Mardell Schuster's talent and was thrilled to try the tutorial. I bought the required paper and markers...thought I'd burst before they got here. I have loved every bit of this process. I will post a picture when the piece is finished. I'm very happy with the progress so far. Recommend to everyone! Thanks Ann for sponsoring it and Mardell for taking the time to create it!

Great Technique!

I really love the talent of Mardell Schuster and couldn't wait to try out her technique on some favorite items of my own. The only difference for me is that I used Prismacolor markers and Prismacolor pencils throughout. I completed the attached work as an experiment in textures just to see how the marker/pencil combo would work in each. I began with the grapes and practically hyper-ventilated I was so excited with the result. It was really a fun adventure.
