Using Multi Media

This is a colored pencil piece with pastel and Conte’ crayon.  I would like to recommend the products used in this drawing.  First, the use of colored paper; Canson, Arches, Strathmore, Rives all come in large sheets (usually 22″x30″, Canson usually runs smaller. By using colored paper, you change the equation of the value spectrum.  Now you need to determine where on a scale of black to white this color fits.  The white of the page will also need to be created.  Therefore, keep in mind to save the value of the paper and create the white areas.  Canson paper was used for this piece.  A variety of colored pencil, mostly Derwent as well as Conte pastel pencil also comprised the media.  For the highlights, white and pale yellow Conte crayon became indispensable.  When using colored pencil, I would advise using the pastels sparingly and only to stretch the existing colors. I cannot over stress the aid of using a kneaded eraser. One can squeeze it into very fine shapes to erase tiny areas as well as being able to mold it into any shape you please.  It leaves no oil residue on the page.  And most importantly, you can bounce it off of walls when frustrated!!
