For this tutorial, I’m working in colored pencil using both Luminance and Polychromos colored pencils. I’m blending with Mona Lisa Odorless paint thinner on a filbert taklon bristled brush and working on Stonehenge paper. I’ve used masking fluid and frisket to protect my subject while I airbrushed the background.  For those of you who are unfamiliar with using masking fluid, I will have a tutorial for that in the near future!
