Re: Exploring Painter Brushes - cOlOrEd PeNciLs

********Just wanted to point out that you should go and look at some of the colored pencil paintings that are done in wet canvas. If you have never seen them, it will blow your mind..............It did mine. I could not believe they were CP.

Below is an example of what I am talking about.....
There is one person that does Cars (eek) that is just amazing!

Re: Exploring Painter Brushes - cOlOrEd PeNciLs

Thanks Aggie for making that easy to access. It is easy to forget that we have great art here at WC in other forums. A reference library of information on each media. A fantastic source to draw from. I like Wendy's work and also Karen's work. They are both very talented people. CP is an ideal medium for creating reflections and you have pointed us to a nice example.

Re: Exploring Painter Brushes - cOlOrEd PeNciLs


Blocking in of color was done with large variants of colored pencil. I continued to layer color strokes over other strokes. I changed settings along the way to get more blending at different stages. I only used colored pencil brushes to blend. I gradually moved to smaller and smaller brushes. I used the oily variants the most. I like the way they blend and mix. The have an oil pastel look to them. I mixed in some hard colored pencil to do a little detail and offer hatched look in other areas. My lines were primarily vertical lines that accented the terrain in the reference photo. I used some cross-hatching and some brillo marks (circular scumbling). I did paint out a few areas and relayer them because they were not the right color value. I chose to stay with a more muted palette to give it a plein-aire look.
I used a fairly large canvas. I used smaller and tighter lines in the distance. My strokes remained larger in the foreground. I cooled the colors more in the background and increased the chroma towards the foreground. This was actually about 3-1/2 hours, which is longer than I originally intended to spend with this painting. When I reduced the image, the strokes became less noticeable and the painting took on a tighter appearance. I think the blocking in strokes were much larger than you would find in traditional pencil and made this a little artificial. In real media, one could block in with acrylic paints and pencil on top to achieve a similar look. Oily pencils can easily be blended and smeared with solvents to give the appearance of broader strokes. Water soluble pencils will react in a similar way with water. Colored pencils are far less limited today than a few years ago. You have more colors and you can do more with them than was previously possible. I like to think of them as smaller painting tools.

Re: Exploring Painter Brushes - cOlOrEd PeNciLs

Glass and metal are often painted with CP. It lends itself to making great detailed contrasts and tightly rendering the reflections we see in these objects. Here is a thread that deals with that in traditional media. For those wishing to try their hand at this, I have included a reference photo for your convenience. The advise given in the CP thread can be applied to Painter IX.

Re: Exploring Painter Brushes - cOlOrEd PeNciLs


When rendering glass, use contrasts like black and white next to each other to simulate reflection. Bring color, both local and reflected color into glass (or metal) near the end by layering your color over your black and white rendering. Other colors can be used instead of black or white, but make sure that they contrast in values, from really light to really dark.

Re: Exploring Painter Brushes - cOlOrEd PeNciLs



I used just about all the colored pencils. To get rid of the jaggies I also blended with the round oil brush. The receding cliffs were softened.

Re: Exploring Painter Brushes - cOlOrEd PeNciLs

AGGIE...I think our first efforts in a new medium are always a learning experience! There will come a day when we're wondering how to get a certain look, and suddenly, we'll think, "Ahhh, colored pencil!"

MARGE....I LIKE it! It has a wonderfully loose look.

PAKI.... A M A Z I N G!!!
