Help in Drawing Fabrics

Does anyone know where I can find help in depicting fabrics in coloured pencils? My backgrounds leave a lot to be desired and I need help in drawing curtains and cushions.

Re: Help in Drawing Fabrics

I just checked our CP Library, but surprisingly, there are no threads focusing on fabric. Perhaps some of the portrait threads may touch on that. I'd say google searching is your best bet.

Re: Help in Drawing Fabrics

I tried too, Penny. I couldn't find anything on here either...but I thought of this - look at artists that do still lifes - a lot of them have fabrics in their pieces, and many do step by step guides. You can find several step-by -step projects on Ann Kullberg's website. Also one that comes to mind that is a phenomenal artist is Janie Gildow. You might not be interested in doing the whole project, but you might find something you can use. Good luck!!

Re: Help in Drawing Fabrics

I have five books by different cp artists and in each only two to three pages describe how to do fabric. So, not very informative but, if you read all of them they do give ideas. If you go to the library you may find some cp books to browse through. The sites you have found also give ideas. I think you wanted to do the fabric in the background of your last doggie portrait. I may be wrong, but it was a very nice fabric and may be worth starting your practice piece with that.

Re: Help in Drawing Fabrics

Yes, Vena. It would be good to improve drawing fabrics for backgrounds. That’s a good idea. I will try the one in the photo of Nico.

I hadn’t thought of the Library. I was there today for novels and will look next time. Thank you.
