Oil-based coloured pencils offer great control over colour layering. See how multiple applications, and varying pressure, can produce different effects.This will be useful for bringing depth to your work.With the opaque laydown of Derwent Lightfast oil-based pencils, dark colours applied with the precision of a hard sharp point will sit over lighter shades for effective outlining and defining negative space.
Over larger areas, layered colours will naturally mix. Rather than limiting your palette to the choices straight out of the tin, expand your colour range by tinting and mixing colours directly on the paper surface.This will create a more natural look to your work. See how pigments completely integrate to form a new and vibrant colour.
An oil-based binder offers unique blending properties.The thick core of Derwent Lightfast allows for dense and even colour application.Work the pigment into the tooth of the paper with lighter colours or a solvent medium to even out the application to create a painterly effect.
Controlling the pressure of the pencil is vital for smooth colour application. Light pressure deposits a minimum amount of pigment to the paper and is ideal for the first colour of a layering sequence, rendering light or creating delicate shadings. Normal pressure provides good application of colour to render mid values and tones, backgrounds and finer detailing. Use heavy pressure for dense colour application when burnishing and creating dark values at the last stages of layering.
