The Colours of Life
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!
