Hanging around artist is the coolest thing in the world. I get to see new techniques (it is old) but new to me.
I had to try this new technique. A new friend of mine over on FB, Mike Chitwood, an amazing young artist, was working with alcohol over colored pencil. I didn’t know about this technique and wanted to try it immediately. I went for the effect on my Cerulean blue background. The alcohol laden brush rubbed over the paper covered with colored pencil evened out and blended my pencil strokes. It’s easy and cheap!
