Techniques for shading, blending, and creating a range of slick and smooth surfaces are explored in this tutorial.
- Testing out the PanPastels on Yupo paper and on charcoal paper.
- The PanPastel sponges and applicators are extremely sensitive and therefore create very subtle effects.
- PanPastels produce very little dust compared to soft pastels.
- PanPastels are lightfast and rich in pigments, available in many colors.
- Balancing warm and cool colors between burnt sienna and a cooler blue color.
- Developing the figure and background simultaneously, so they progress at the same rate.
- Often one reference photo doesn’t have all the qualities you want, so using two reference photos can help a lot.
- Sometimes a reference photo that is very detailed can be harder to work from, in that you are less likely to invent in your drawing.
- Squint to see past details and capture the larger shapes first.
