Start drawing confidently and beautifully in colored pencil with lessons from artist and instructor Susan Rubin. Get set up for success as you learn to choose the perfect materials for your skill level, budget and preferred subject matter. Put pencil to paper as Susan simplifies color mixing with luminous color “recipes” you can recreate again and again. Then, enhance your drawings with methods for blending colored pencils and using everyday items to add amazing textures and details. Move on to drawing a still life of cherries using techniques for underpainting, drawing shadows, creating an atmospheric background and more. You’ll even get step-by-step guidance for drawing a bright and beautiful flower using a new layering method and tips for achieving true-to-life shading.
