This is the OLD version of the topics web site.

as it contains old tutorials and charts no longer included in the new build of the site. This site is no longer updated

GENERAL COLOURED PENCIL TECHNIQUES





This section looks in more detail at particular techniques and  collects together a range of notes built up over a period of time.  

Some of the notes repeat, summarise or extend notes found elsewhere on the site,

but wherever possible, links are provided to the alternative information on the same topic.
