Colored Pencil Basics

Not the map pencils you used in school, but smooth, rich color that can stand alone as an art medium or be mixed with watercolor or pastels. Create landscape, portrait, nature themed art, abstracts...any subject and in array of styles.

Colored pencils can be intimidating; having a guide to tell you of the different types of pencils, how to choose colors for your project, techniques of layering, shading, and creating textures can make this a relaxing and rewarding medium. 

Basic drawing and deigning techniques will also be covered.
