Suitable for beginners with some knowledge of how to use pastel pencils
Learn how to use a mixed media approach when painting a subject with pastel pencils.
1/4 sheet of 140# hotpress watercolor paper or 9x12” white un-sanded pastel paper such as Canson Mi Tientes, charcoal paper or mixed media paper. I will have some of these papers for sale if you don’t have any.
Pastel pencils - Recommended : Set of 60 pastel pencils: Carbothello orFaber Castel Pitt Pastel pencils available online through Dick Blick or Jerrysartarama.
Tube of black gouache (opaque watercolor - not acrylic).
Watercolor brushes: small flat, round and liner
Water container and small palette, plate or other small surface to use for gouache
Pencil sharpening tools such as a snap off utility knife or a quality new manual pencil sharpener (caution: sometimes these may cause pastel leads to break as the blades get old). Medium or fine sand paper.
Kneaded eraser or poster tack. White soft eraser.
Masking Tape to tape paper to board
Graphite pencil for tracing subject.
Smooth hard backing board to attach your paper to. A 11x14 or larger is a good size for a 9x12 sheet of paper. You can use the back of an 11x14 canvas board.
