Lesson: The Power of White

White gel pens, white pencils, white paint markers. They’re on every beginner supply list. That’s because highlighting is easy and fun. Even a beginner can do it, right?

Wrong.

Did you know that white flattens your projects and robs them of depth and dimension?

Too many colorers slather-on white highlights in the misguided attempt to add depth, dimension, and realism. But to paraphrase Mr. Incredible:

If EVERYTHING is highlighted, then NOTHING is highlighted!

Join Amy as we explore how to use white intelligently.

Learn to color white objects with realism and yet retain the ability to highlight key areas and add beautiful dimension.

White doesn’t make great snow and it doesn’t make it glow!
