You will learn how to layer these complements over one another, creating rich shadows and adding depth and dimension to a painting. With extensive coverage of basic techniques, detailed information on composition, color theory, textures and more, color pencil artists will learn everything they need to achieve rich, vibrant colors by layering complementary colors. 6 mini-demos show the various techniques needed to use this approach and an extended demonstration leads them through the entire painting process, step by step.
