Beauty is in the details. Fuzzy, thorny, rough and smooth: It’s all form on a small scale. Learn to see textures in a new way that allows you to recreate them realistically using a variety of colored pencil techniques specific to Mylar film. Mylar’s texture and translucence allow for a whole new way to work. We’ll explore pencil application and layering techniques using the back of the surface to enhance the front. Through guided exercise and practice, you will become comfortable with this forgiving surface and assemble a collection of texture technique studies to expand your colored pencil toolbox.
