You can save time, as an underpainting requires less subsequent layering and burnishing. Underpainting is a good way to quickly color white paper and still maintain enough tooth for subsequent layering. And, it will be easier for you to erase later mistakes over an underpainting. Both Nan Klein and Donna Caputo have demonstrated the use of a dry underpainting. The CPSA also permits the use of solvents. If you use water soluble pencils for your underpainting, after you have applied your color, use a small watercolor brush to blend; choose your brush size to complement the size of the area to be painted. If you use wax or oil-based pencils, you must blend with a solvent such as Turpenoid or rubber cement thinner. You can partially remove underpainted color using a kneaded or battery-powered eraser. 3 Methods of Watercolor pencil/crayon Underpaintings.

I will be doing the one larger, but i have to wait until I have other things to order before I get my big board to save on shipping. I promised to give my opinions and experience of using watercolor pencils/crayons underneath dry colored pencil. I tried underpaintings in a few different ways. This method worked very well, and the light effects of it are spectacular with the light catching those lighter colors underneath.

I used Neocolor II watersoluable crayons which can easily be made to cover large spaces quickly. In these bag drawings I deliberately did not do any details at all with the watercolor crayons - just very simple blocked in colors all over the board. This again worked very well. Colored Pencil.

Take another look at the initial step in the previous photos to give you an idea. Anything lighter than this is just extra work though personally i think that the more layers you take the time to do, the better the result will be. I have just found a happy medium here. It also depends of course on the strength of colour in your subject. Obviously youd start MUCH lighter if you are painting something white/pink than pink/red. Do yourself a favour & get some good paper though, it makes all the difference & is sometimes the source of the trouble right there.
