Mastering Color and Underpainting with Colored Pencils

Values are as important as color when creating realistic colored pencil drawings. The traditional way to achieve a dark shadow is to add black. However, another way to achieve richer shadows is to add the complementary color instead of black. Underpainting with complements was highlighted in Arlene Steinberg’s book Masterful Color. In this class, you will learn how rich, vibrant color and values can be achieved with colored pencils.
