Want great, time-saving backgrounds?

Many artists like to create the background first, to get it over and done before going on with the more exciting bits. But a large background area can often be tedious and boring to create. Fear not, Pearl has a great solution... in fact, she has lots of them! Come explore the many ways – and all the different non-colored pencil media you can use – to speed up your backgrounds, all ready for the fun colored pencil detail on the top.  

There is so much you can do with backgrounds and so many materials you can use, so this class will be a demonstration only.  Pearl will...

Fear not, Pearl has a great solution... in fact, she has lots of them! Come explore the many ways – and all the different non-colored pencil media you can use – to speed up your backgrounds, all ready for the fun colored pencil detail on the top.  

There is so much you can do with backgrounds and so many materials you can use, so this class will be a demonstration only.  Pearl will be using watercolor paper, Pastelmat, colored pencils, pastels, Pan pastels, marker pens, watercolor pens, masking fluid, paint brushes, OMS and blender markers and more. Just watch, choose a method, and try it yourself later!

Just bring a notebook and a pencil for notes, and be prepared to come away with LOTS of ideas!

You'll learn:
• What underpaintings are and how to create them
• When you might (and might not) want an underpainting
• What surfaces are good for underpaintings with colored pencil

    Very Informative

    Excellent class! Learned a lot about materials and what seems to work and what doesn’t.

    Underpainting with Pearl

    Great workshop! I learned techniques that will make "going larger" with my art a lot less frightening now that I know the options. And I hadn't realized my use of OMS was an underpainting method... Despite initial technical problems the entire program was presented with grace and humor.

    Great info, tips and demos for underpainting

    Zoom was having issues, but the class was great. Been a colored pencil artist for decades - but a purist in most respects. Have never done anything except 100% colored pencil. Knew nothing of underpainting and background painting. Loved learning new things to try. I think that new techniques and methods can't help but expand your universe and improve your skills. Looking forward to putting a few things I learned into use, especially for expensive backgrounds that are a pain in the neck using only pencils.

    I REALLY needed this!

    Great info from Pearl on all the best methods and materials for underpainting. She covered and demoed surface types, Odorless Mineral Spirits, watercolors, watercolor/alcohol markers and watercolor pencils, as well as pastel pencils and panpastels on Pastelmat. She showed great examples of her own work: added inspiration! A very comprehensive presentation in a short time frame. All the goodies and no fluff! Also great admin backup from Jeannice Gordon! Thanks everyone!

    I really enjoyed this class, Pearl gave us a ton of information on paper, pencils, and mediums to use in our colored pencil drawings. Looking forward to trying some of the new techniques out.
