"Strawberry" A New Colored Pencil Study

This is another colored pencil study of a Strawberry.    The original background did not turn out well at all ... so an "India Ink" wash to the rescue!

If you are interested in learning these techniques yourself, purchase the book "Colored Pencil Painting Bible" (Techniques for Achieving Luminous Color and Ultrarealistic Effects) by Alyona Nickelsen

This book has to be one of the best investments I have ever made!

  2. It is several layers of different colors ... I'll tell you, Stacy, this new book is awesome! Teaching me techniques that are easy, simple, and bring a new dynamics to the art of colored pencil work....
