The Ultimate Guide to Colored Pencil
by Gary Greene
Known for his incredibly realistic paintings and his detailed step-by-step instruction, best-selling author Gary Greene has created this awesome reference for all things colored pencil—both on a basic and more advanced level–giving you quick access to his tips, tricks and techniques for creating exceptionally realistic colored pencil artwork.
Artist Gary Greene demonstrates how to effectively burnish colored pencil on a black background in five easy steps. The technique of burnishing layers a sequence of colors, mixing them together with white or other light colors, repeating the sequence until the surface is covered with pigment. This technique becomes especially interesting on black, or other dark-colored surfaces. For this demonstration, the gloxinia’s color was intentionally changed from the reference photo’s pink-red hues to violet.
