How to Draw a Drop of Honey – With Color Pencils


Hello my friends and welcome
to another Tuesday of tutorial! I am Leonardo Pereznieto and today
we will draw a drop of honey. We begin sketching the wooden stick,
from where the honey will be dripping. It will be tilted, like this. I am drawing with a brown pencil,
it will be of about this thickness and the honey will be near the tip,
dripping down [laughs] obviously, it would be tough to drip up, wouldn´t it?
more or less like this. Stretching, when a drop of honey
drips down, it generally stretches. Very good! This part will be rounded, bulging
and now I erase all the lines that I don´t need anymore. And with a lighter brown
I begin giving color to the wood. When you are using color pencils,
it is better to start light. Apply the first layer, lightly
and in this way, you will be able to mix other colors by applying
more layers on it. If you apply a lot of pressure
on the first one, then it will be more difficult to mix other colors. Every time you do a new layer,
you can apply more and more pressure. I did the outline of the drop with
a darker tone, and I´m using a reddish brown on this area,
leaving a white reflection. We will be able to see through
the color of the wood, but lighter. I keep switching pencils to create
the right tone for the wood and for the honey. Even with
some touches of cream and yellow. While the darker browns
I use them for the shadows obviously. For the honey I mix yellows
of different tones and orange. On some sections like on the
boarders, the wood can be reflected. The bottom part of the drop,
as it is thicker, it goes darker. And lastly, we should do some
little bubbles and particles, characteristic of honey. Some of these can be stretching,
like this.. Good! I like it how it is looking! We give it the last details….
