Do you want to know what analoguous 3 violet, violet-red, and red looks like using Derwent Lightfast pencils? You can view the short video below, or follow the steps provided in this post.
We have used our product OCP1383-7 ‘Number 35 and Derwent Lightfast – Course’ in this exercise.
Let’s see what it looks like.
You can see a snapshot of the outlined steps below by viewing the following short video.
If you can’t see the video, you can find it here.
If you are using the pdf workbook from the course, print the pencil details pages. Then gather your violet, violet-red, red and neutral Derwent Lightfast coloured pencils. Lightly draw on the colour swatches so you know the colours you are working with in your drawing.
Next, draw a simple design on a small piece of paper. This is so you can see how the pencils perform without wasting time, or too much pencil or paper.
Start your first layer. Place down your neutral pencils, violet, violet-red and red pencils as you choose on your design. For a tip, you can write initials of the colours you want to use in the places you would like to draw the colour.
Keep laying your colour as you choose until all your image has been covered with a first layer of pencil.
Start your second layer of colour. You can place colour over neutrals, or neutrals over colour. Or colour over colour. It is your choice. Experiment and see how it turns out. You are wanting to see what analoguous 3 violet, violet-red and red using Derwent Lightfast pencils looks like.
When the second layer of colour is completed, you can start your third layer. In this layer, you can apply more pressure to your pencil and achieve a burnished look.
Once the third layer is completed, make final touchups to the image. You can then keep this image together with your pencil details and colour swatches for future use.
If you’d like to save time, we have created a workbook you can purchase that separates the Derwent Lightfast range of 100 pencils into neutral and colour family groups. You can find more more information about this workbook ‘PPP1546 Colour Harmony and Derwent Lightfast pencils‘ here.
