    WOW do you think you could do a tutorial on water surfaces? This is soooo cool but it's too fast to get what you're doing. If you could it would be very helpfull!

    Gorgeous result. I've never tried (nor even heard of) powdered blender. A real eye-opener.

    Reply
  • Sweeney_VB

    So you were supposed to be giving a demonstration on how to use the blending powder but you still reverted to a blending spirit. But you clearly told me is that I should be using odorless spirits versus the powder. I also feel like you way overworked the background. That should have taken less time.

    Hi Lisa, I saw another demo where you talked about not using this method on normal paper, only on sanded board or gessoed paper. But I would like to know, does the textured spray work on normal paper? in general, how does these products work on oil pencils vs wax pencils? Getting hold of the products in Europe is impossible because of the spraycans that can't be sent by air mail. Can't get sanded paper here or prismacolor pencils either Wish they would sell it in pump atomizers whitch would eliminate that problem.

    Lisa, how do you deal with the nerves before starting a new painting? I'm working on three concentrations that tie into each other, and I've done all my research but it's rough. Getting started, actually started with the paint (oil on canvas) really stops me from comfortably getting started.

    Lisa, you have been, are, and always will be AMAZING. This work is so fantastic. You are indeed a master of the 'color pencil'. you not only create wonderful work, you have a gift on how to demonstrate what you do and a talent to teach your techniques. I have lost track on how ling I have been viewing your work, but you get better and better each time I view your work. Lisa, we all appreciate what you do and how you do it. Have a great day.

    getting ready to buy a colored pencil set and i ran across an old video of your's …prismacolor vs faber castell, really glad i did, that made up my mind, if yer gonna spend some money on a product the least they could do is check their quality before it leave's the shop. anyway, thanks for the tip's, and your work is beautiful

    good day. I am wondering how you go from your reference picture to the paper/board? Do you draw a picture first with all the detail and transfer to the board with chalk and draw over your drawing? seems like a ton of work.
    thanks for your time.
    I love your work. I am a detail artist as well but I usually only draw the subject in some detail to the board and the background is looser. I refer to my reference for the detail.

    Ampersand pastelbord from dickblick also works great for this technique – it's a sanded board.

    Girrrrl you're costing me a lot of $$$…bought OMS, a full set of polychromos (I have a large set of Prismacolors too), now just bought texture fixative and touch-up texture/titanium white… ๐Ÿคฃ It's a good thing, though..I was getting "stuck" on some things and am eager to try the texture fixative, etc. Loving the polychromos. Hoping your back feels better! Thank you for the videos, they are so informative!

    You are very talented however and I mean this is the best way possible, I feel like a lot of artists on here aren't taking the time to do real time teaching of the PROCESS of how they get these amazing works rather more of a showing off of their skills in a sped up manner. I watch to learn things and as soon as I see it's going to be a sped up version I end the video. I think it would be more beneficial to viewers if you were to show your techniques in real time, don't edit out your mistakes being made, show and name ALL colors ur using and how ur applying them, how your blending, when you switch mediums ect… I don't know about anyone else but I want to see a real time painting video where it's right up to the canvas so we can see every detail even if it takes several videos to do one painting rather than seeing a lightening fast sped up version. I absolutely love your work and would love to see more in depth teaching I guess is what I'm trying to say!

    Check this out! A graphite portrait using the powder blender. I didn't think you could use this on graphite but it really works.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JLUnS_dush8
    Now I want to know if the titanium white texture corrector will work for highlights on graphite. After watching your videos while working on my own project, I removed the box of 150 Prismacolors set from my cart at Jerry's and I'm waiting one more month to get the 120 set of Polychromos. You probably just saved me from wasting seventy bucks. Thanks! I will probably also purchase the Colored Pencil kit from Brush and Pencil although I don't fully understand all of this gesso and sanded paper stuff yet. More research….sigh…..I've been a graphite artist all of my life but I am trying to branch out into color. Does anyone know if the Polychromos set has a colorless blender? Wonderful work as usual and I do so hope that you are feeling better. Sending you light and love!

    Is there another way of applying the gesso without using an airbrush?? And would I need to buy all the supplies that are listed on the website for my first time using it??? Such an amazing work!!!

    with the texture fixative does it matter if you spray over the paper you haven't drawn/coloured on yet. I see you spray often over your drawing but I worry about the paper not drawn on. Lovely piece Lisa

    Lisa, I am so excited to have found your site. I have been doing colored pencil for years sometimes using OMS. I have ordered the oil based pencils and the powder blender kit. Can't find the Fisher 400 Sanded Paper Premounted. Where do you order yours? In my "impulse purchase" pile I found an Ampersand pastel board and a textured clay board. Would either work? Cara

  • cara brinkley

    Cara Thank you for a wonderful demo of a brand new (to me) method. I bought the whole kit, followed your instructions and have finished my picture. Now I have questions about the final fixative spray. Does it waterproof and protect my work so that I do not need a glass and can just put it into a frame? If not, how do I attach a mat to the heavy sand paper board? And on my card under medium, do I "put "polychromo colored pencil onProArt Board"? Help!

    You are the best teacher ever! I have watched so many of your videos. In one you recommended a white colored pencil for the sandpaper. Please remind me of the pencil brand as I have forgotten in which video you explored that.

    I have seen a lot of your tutorial videos and this is probably my very favorite end result. I love the way you use the lavenders and oranges in the bird and the way you abstract the water! Thanks for the powder blender tips. I just started using the medium and I appreciate your insight and tips!

    Question… I just ordered the powder blender as it looks like it has an awesome effect! You mention using sanded paper or gessoing paper as it needs a non-absorbent surface. I have gessoed mdf panels already. Would these work just as well with the powder blender? It would be non absorbent, but perhaps would it be too hard a surface compared to gessoed paper?

    Hi Lisa, I have a question. In your opinion, would Grumbacher workable fixative work in place of the texture fixative from brush and pencil? I just cannot afford the $18 plus $14 shipping to get the brand you recommend in the video. I want your honest opinion though, even if it's gonna cost me more. Thanks for all you do.
