I recently had the fantastic opportunity to watch Jacqui & Helen’s DVD – Coloured Pencil Techniques.
If you’re looking to learn some fantastic pencil techniques this DVD is one you definitely should be looking at. In the DVD Helen and Jacqui, spend time explaining many of the various materials and methods that you can use with pencils, some covering the wet pencils techniques (using water etc) but also the dry pencils that many of the top coloured pencil artists use. The techniques cover not only those which you can use in botanical art but coloured pencil art in general from a variety of levels. There are some fabulous little exercises that you could follow along with and try out for yourself.
The video itself is professionally put together with lots of close ups so that you can really follow along from home. Here is a promo for you to take a look for yourself. If you would like to learn pencil techniques I definitely recommend you get take a look at the DVD.
