Topic: Online Class
Today I started working again on online classes I have registered for, some started, but had gotten sidetracked on. I decided to jump into the one I was farthest along in.
This class is Colored Pencil Jumpstart from art-classes.com and the lesson (#6) is called Black Magic.
It uses transparent colored pencils applied over white colored pencil on black cardstock. Instead of coloring in darker on the shadows you apply white heavier where you want the brightest highlights and lesser where the shadows would be. Then the colored pencil goes on over top of it using an even pressure.
Magically, you get gradations of color on your black paper.
The first I did was this pear which was first stamped in Studio G white pigment ink.
Then I colored this hummingbird with flowers.
The black cardstock I used kicked back a lot of light reflection so you lose some of the effect. But it turned out nice enough that I used this second one in my devotional book for today.
