In this week’s Podcast, Colin talks about which pastel pencils you can choose for skin tones including when to use ivory to pick out the highlights. We also tackle a question that comes up regularly on how to apply white as a base colour to ensure it’s strong enough on the paper. Colin explains the technique of doing this without crushing the paper and why he wouldn’t use white polychromos pastel sticks or soft pastels as a base colour for even large areas.
