COLOURED PENCIL PAINTINGS
Coloured pencils are today widely used as a media for painting
and drawing. Colours can be effectively mixed on the picture
surface to create a wide range of hues.
Coloured pencils can be mixed in a variety of ways, the traditional
one being hatching and crosshatching as shown in the artworks
This method allows you to achieve subtle colour mixing effects
as well as considerable depth of colour.
Tones are built slowly by lightly hatching one colour on top
of the other. This allows the underneath colour to appear,
although lightly creating colour harmony.
