Patreon – Butterfly in Colored Pencil
Your first project using Powder Blender
This project is pretty simple so that you can focus more on the layering and blending if you’re new to blending colored pencils with powder blender.

If you have trouble watching this video you have two options while we are looking into solutions.
The first option is to force the video quality. The following is what Vimeo has said about this problem:
“If they are indeed using iOS 11, unfortunately, it appears that this issue is deriving from Apple’s software. Thus there’s nothing we can do to resolve the problem from our side of things. We have reported this bug to Apple’s engineering team and we hope to have a resolution soon. As soon as we receive an update, we’ll be sure to send it along.”
If that doesn’t work for you, just fill out your name and email address in the form below and I will send you another link 🙂

I am always happy to have you copy my work for your own practice. Be aware of what reference photo I used, sometimes you will need to purchase the photo from the photographer to use even for practice. I will let you know when that is the case. As a general rule, you can not copy my work and make prints/sell that work. I retain copyright of the work I complete.
If you follow one of my lessons, you are more than welcome to post your work on social media to share what you’ve done, as long as you include in your post that you followed one of my lessons.
For this piece, I combined one of my own reference photos with one from Pixabay.
