It's a new kind of mixology! Join award-winning artist and teacher Janie Gildow as she shows you essential techniques for combining watercolors and colored pencils to create art that's interesting to look at and makes the most of your creativity.
Meet instructor and award-winning colored pencil artist Janie Gildow and begin by warming up with blender bars. Together, you'll review the tools you'll need to get started, how to select the best watercolor materials for your project, and basic methods for creating combined colored pencil and watercolor artworks.
Take the guesswork out of combining colored pencils and watercolors by learning to make and use a color predictor. Then start on your first mini-project: painting and coloring yellow candy-covered chocolates by applying watercolor over your colored pencil layers.
Janie shares two more techniques: You'll see how to apply colored pencil on top of watercolor and you'll learn an integrated method for applying both mediums somewhat simultaneously. Practice these skills in two more mini-projects featuring fruit.
