Meet your instructor, Amy Lindenberger and learn about her unique approach to using colored pencils. In this lesson, you'll explore the properties of Claybord, an inexpensive, easy-to-find surface for your soft focused landscape. Amy will also help you get your project set up with a line drawing and a coat of powdered graphite.
Learn how to identify the different value ranges in your reference photo. Then get Amy's tips for "drawing" with your kneaded eraser, which allows you to remove graphite for the lightest and brightest areas of your drawing as well as areas with mid-light values.
Pick up new techniques for "drawing" with a variety of more rigid erasers. You'll find out how to use these tools to bring more detailed areas of your landscape to life. Amy will also guide you through using both rigid and kneaded erasers to create a range of values, along with edges such as soft gradations and clear-cut lines.
