In this short tutorial I show you a finishing technique which is useful if you feel the paper won't take any more washes or you just fancy trying some new materials to add more depth and texture to your study. I show how gentle shading of coloured pencils can add more colour and texture.
Have fun and see how you get on.
Warm wishes, Billy
