About This Class

Learn how to paint using water-soluble colored pencils in your art for stunning effects. In this class, I will demonstrate various water-soluble pencil techniques that make this medium so unique and versatile, from dry pencil layering to different wet applications and stunning effects, for beautiful colors and vibrant results that combine the best of water media with colored pencil textures!

We will be creating a color wheel and I will guide you step-by-step through two tutorials, a sphere where we will learn how to create shadows and light, and a butterfly where you will learn to create a beautiful contrast to make the painting pop.

If you'd like to explore watercolor pencils further, here is my other class Colored pencils: Blue Morpho butterfly paint-along with watercolor pencils!

Have fun drawing and painting! :)
