and applying it to our dragon drawings.

 

Try these complex mixes to create vibrant colours:

greenadd blue to darken and yellow to lighten 

orange – add red to darken and yellow to lighten

purple – add blue to darken and red to lighten 

To help with pencil work watch the following video and follow these rules:

No 1: Layers!  Build in layers

No 2: Pressure! Use plenty of Pressure!

No 3: Don’t just use one colour – blend!
