Here is a sample of the first steps in a still life demonstration presented to my Saturday morning class.
Colored pencil is a slow process, but very enjoyable. The artist mixes colors by layering them over each other. By keeping the point of the pencil very sharp and using a light touch, you can preserve the tooth of the paper. The more colors and layers used will help the artist produce a picture that has a rich blend of color.
