Janie Gildow's drawing classes provide a firm foundation for the colored pencil artist. Now, she shares the rich and elegant art of colored pencil drawing in a DVD workshop format in The Colored Pencil: Getting Started Right .
Gildow first covers the basics of drawing, including how to choose pencils, erasers, and papers, then shows the proper grip for pressure control, in exercises that result in both variegated and smooth tones. Also covered are the major pencil techniques of layering and burnishing, and the benefits of each.
Gildow demonstrates modifications to make when working on dark paper, how to incise lines, and how the blending of contrasting colors is different with colored pencil than with liquid media. She also shares how she achieves her elegant hues, and includes a useful discussion about the color wheel.
