Description

Colored Pencil Pocket Palette is the perfect companion for the aspiring colorist. You'll learn how to mix every color necessary to create stunning art from a basic palette. With a coloring book built into the back, it is an easy reference for immediate, on-the-go coloring.

Without the correct colors, art can't sing the way it's meant to. Compared to other mediums, mixing colored pencils for beginners can be quite difficult because instead of melding colors, you must layer them with the correct pressure, latching, and color density to reach your desired hue. Use crosshatching techniques explained in this book and the blended colored pencil guide to take the guess work out of coloring vibrant drawings. Each swatch shades from light to dark to show what amount of pressure you'll need to reach your desired opacity. There are instructions on how both dry and water-soluble pencils meld, so you can use your favorite colored pencil type or explore the medium. Comes complete with coloring pages in the back to test colors and make coloring easier on the go.

Information is presented in a clear, precise, and thought out way from the perspective of a professional artist. The different methods of overlaying colored pencils are explained and demonstrated. Save time with your drawing and spend time practicing your craft than guessing your color palette.
