Drawing with Coloured Pencils Step by Step.

Let's go through the picture creation process from the first step to the last.

1) Idea. No picture can be done without it. We can find inspiration in our own minds, our surroundings, and generally from the entire world.

2) Picture format. Once we have an idea of what we are going to draw, we should also clarify how large we want it to be. When working with crayons, we prefer to use smaller formats, such as A4 or A3, so that we do not have to colour large areas.

3) Paper. It depends on the structure of the surface, for coloured pastels it is better to reach for a coarser structure so that the colours adhere well into the paper and overlap each other.

4) Pencil hardness. A softer pencil, e.g. 4B, will be sufficient. It does not make too deep marks on the paper, so we can easily erase and repair the trace if necessary.

5) Rubber. Blue kneaded rubber, which does not devastate the paper, is best suited for erasing in artistic drawings.

6) Sketch. We will lay out the motif on the desktop. First, sketch the composition of the picture with a rough and quick sketch, without applying too much pressure on the pencil; we just lightly outline the basic lines.

7) Motif. We will sketch additional lines. For darker places we will use softer gradations. It is convenient to have a complete set of all pencil gradations on hand.

8) Outline. We always choose the most suitable line from the sketch and redraw it carefully with a liner. We most often have them from 0.3 mm to 0.7 mm and we use thinner ones for finer details.

9) Erasing. After drawing the selected lines, we will take the rubber and erase all the excess lines of the pencil.

10) Colouring. It's time for a set of Polycolor artistic coloured pencils in as many shades as possible. Gradually colour all areas.

11) Sharpening. For larger areas, the consumption of the lead increases. Before colouring the details, we will sharpen it again with a sharpener to a sharp tip.

12) Blending. To soften the transitions between colours, we can use a blender, which will naturally blend the individual shades.

13) Fixative. After finishing the drawing, it is suitable to fix it with a spray fixative, so that the colours last beautifully saturated for decades.
