In this episode Colin talks about how he was able to 'erase' a tree in his latest coloured pencil picture using solvent and the other colours in the trees. We also talk about his latest Shadow pictures and what makes it some of the most challenging work he's done to date. Lastly, Colin offers his advice for putting white into black tiger stripes.
In this episode Colin talks about going back to coloured pencils and a new landscape he's been working on. In his new picture there are a lot of trees and so this gives Colin an opportunity to talk about creating trees with coloured pencils and more specifically how to separate them using light and dark.
In this episode we revisit a topic that we've touched upon in a few podcasts and that's how to get a bright white on the paper. It's a big topic and problem for a lot of our students so we thought we've cover it as extensively as we can in this episode. We also answer questions about Albrecht Durer pencils, using PastelMat for the first time and how to create realistic portraits.
In this episode Colin talks about his latest commission ventures and how he's looking to keep his work varied with impressionism and other mediums.
