Derwent Pencils Tutorial

Multi Media Tutorial
Derwent Coloured Pencils
on 
Bockingford Watercolour Paper



Material I used

Derwent Tinted Charcoal Pencils
Derwent Coloursoft Pencils
Derwent Drawing Pencils
Bockingford Paper by the St.Cuthbert Paper Mill
Sundries such as Blue-Tack, paper stump for blending, pencil sharpener...


Using a light charcoal pencil I outlined the drawing area and the rocks. The texture of the paper is just so lovely for this kind of subject. 





Using the Coloursoft pencils I started to add colour to the rocks


Using the tinted charcoal pencils I started to add colour to the foreground. Also started using the Drawing pencils on the rocks, these pencils have fabulous natural colours


Using the Coloursoft and the Drawing pencils I started to firm up the colours and added shadows. When drawing a similar subject be mindful of the contrast between light and dark areas. Create contrast it will help create light 



Using the Coloursoft and the Drawing pencils I created the rockpool in the foreground



Using the Coloursoft and the Drawing pencils I added the final touches. Where necessary I used Blue-Tack to lighten some of the rocks where I thought their colour was just a touch too pronounced.
