Hint in Blending: I prefer a Prismacolor Colorless Blender pencil to mix the light colors in highlight areas as opposed to the mineral spirits or turpenoid.

I often draw with white pencil over the finished artwork to lighten up a particular area if it got too dark, or to smooth out an area around the highlights. ” -- Giuseppe Verdi If you lack the patience to spend long hours, and even weeks on a single piece of art, then colored pencils are not your friends.

Lightfast pencils cost a bit more and are available in 48 colors sold individually or in a set of 12, 24& 48. Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencil Blenders feature non-pigmented, wax-based lead ideal for softening hard edges and blending colors. They are sold individually. I use these a lot to blend light color combinations in my drawings. Prismacolor Art Stix are a high quality “sticks” that have all the basic properties of colored pencils, but are shaped into pastel form. This allows for a bold, rich lay down of color to cover large areas of drawing—speeding up the creative process and conserving regular pencils for detail work.

Beware of cheap papers, or papers suitable for sketch drawing only. They do not accept as many layers of color as more expensive papers do, and they also pick up pencil grime easily. Pencil grime will muddy the surface of the drawing, especially in the area with highlights.
