I wondered why Derwent features animal drawings in all their advertisements of these colored "drawing" pencils. Then I started using them. Instead of searching for a color natural to animal fur, feathers, skin and scales, these 12 or 24 colors offered lucious creamy "natural" colors that blend well and lay down color both subtle and bold.
Julia Carpenter is truly a portrait master. Her empathy stops us dead in our tracks. This demo will be different than others because she'll use colored pencils--these small tools. We're used to seeing her cover space with broad tools and brushes swimming with color. She will still make the color swim and express the essence of animals living their lives. But how will she do it--with pencils?? I want to know.
