The Colours of Life

The Colours of Life. Colourpencils, blended with baby oil. Ulla Hennig December 2012

I wanted to blend the various shades of red I’ve got: dark red, cadmium red medium, scarlet red dark cadmium orange. I added cadmium yellow, phtaloblue and magenta.

I dipped the paper stump ever so gently into the oil, trying not to get too much oil on the paper. As far as I can see the oil didn’t mess up the paper (I used drawing cardboard  with 190g)

Blending with baby oil has a different effect compared with blending with markers. Some people say that it makes coloured pencils look like markers, but I don’t agree with that. There is still a difference!
