Winslow Arts Center
Capturing Nature with Colored Pencils
Legion Stonehenge Pad, 11 x 14 inches
Canson Mi-Tientes Pastel Pad, 9 x 12 inches OR Strathmore 400 Series Toned paper pad, 11 x 14 inches
Dura-Lar film, 0.005”, 9 x 12 inches, pad
Black mat board - cut to roughly 9 x12 inches. At least one piece. Coquille board/coquille paper (also known as stipple paper), 9 x 12 inches.
There are many wonderful pencil brands out there to choose from. Here are a few that I’ve worked with and highly recommend; look for a set of at least 24 or 36 colors.
Faber-Castell Polychromos Artist Colored Pencils
Prismacolor - Verithin (a harder color lead, great for detail work) Prismacolor - Softcore pencils
Derwent lightfast colored pencils
Derwent colored drawing pencils
Lyra Rembrandt Polycolor
Rexel Cumberland Derwent - vintage, but if you can find them, snap them up!
All that said, I would recommend a set of color pencils that are best for blending as it will allow us to explore layering. Here are a few to choose from:
spirit (small bottle) Blending stumps or Tortillons Q-tips
Derwent Blender & Burnisher set (works well with any brand of colored pencil)
Optional (but, oh so cool!) - electric eraser
HB graphite pencil and eraser (gum eraser and Stablo Legacy white eraser)
Graphite transfer paper, one sheet, 9 x 12
Tracing paper pad, 9 X 12 inches
Backing board and artists tape; or a piece of Mat board about 11 x 14 inches would work.
