- When starting a new artwork, it can be helpful to define specific goals you have for that artwork.
- You can think about your experience with the last artwork you made and determine a goal based on that.
- Loosening up your drawing process can be helpful in terms of keeping the drawing more flexible.
- Avoid “coloring in” large areas of color where all of your marks are going in the same direction.
- Varying the direction of your marks in all different ways keeps the drawing more cohesive.
- Sometimes the very beginning of a drawing can be refreshingly “easy,” what you need to do next is often very straightforward!
- Squinting so that you don’t get distracted by details is a good strategy when blocking in the large shapes in your composition.
- How do you determine what type and brand of colored pencil to purchase?
- Colored pencils really depend on the artist’s personal preference.
- The range of colored pencils is quite broad, some brands can be soft and crumbly, while others can be stiff and hard.
- Experiment with several colored pencil brands and see what is the best fit for the way you draw.
