Apple Juice, 11 x 12
See how the yellow shines through the layers of color to create a glow? I've used this method with other colors as well. If I'm not sure whether or not it will work (or look good after a lot of layers) I use a scrap piece of paper to work out the order of the colors. I write down the names of each color so I'll remember what I did in case I stop and come back to it the next day. Give it a try, I think you'll like this technique.
I want to thank the folks at the Greater St. Louis Art Association for having me present a workshop this past week. It was a pleasure to speak to his talented group of artists. I gave them my top tips for selling online as well as some of my favorite colored pencil techniques. If you're in the St. Louis area check out their juried Art Fair at Queeny Park, March 30 - April 1
