Are you ready for something exciting? Then let your creativity and imagination run wild with the Blazing Sunset Tutorial for advanced artists.
This tutorial began as an experiment. I found a photo I absolutely had to draw, and that was perfect for testing Brush & Pencil colored pencil painting tools on Lux Archival paper. The results?
In a word, thrilling!
Laying down color was fun, easy, and fast! So was blending. I even got to do a little brush work, something I learned to love as an oil painter. A world of possibilities opened before me as I worked through this drawing.
Now, I want to share that world with you through this tutorial.
