This was another tutorial from Marian Jackson MDA, very easy to follow tutorials including videos of Marian actually painting the same scene in some of them. This is done on black Stonehenge paper using Faber Castell Polychromos pencils and over coating in Prismacolor pencils which is a softer pencil in certain places where i needed highlights tobe.
I thought the subject matter was fabulous and the picture really appealed to me, i downloaded it and set about ‘colouring in’ if you like, it is that easy. Now before you go thinking ‘Oh its too easy for me’ , let me tell you there are some really skilled parts to it as well, so test yourself with this painting, it has something for everyone, and after it is done you will get the same feeling of achievment that i did.
Going through the application of layes of pigment is somewhat satisfying, and when you seen the build up of colour, light and shadow adding to the overall look, well it just makes you want to do more….
