    use an exacto-knife to cut the pencil into a long, tapered point, then sharpen said point with sand paper. do it right and you'll be able to stab a fruit fly between the eyes.

    hmm, I'm going to have to take issue with the notion of any colour being 'neutral', in the same way no colour is 'warm' or 'cool' in itself; it's all about what it is relating to.

    direct sunlight is not just an inconvenience; you'll overcompensate for the brightness by painting darker, and you'll end up with a murky painting.

    hope it's useful to you all. mind you, I've only tried this sight-size, but I reckon the principle should work for any comparative drawing from nature.

    Here's a tip I picked up, which I haven't heard or read before. It might be common knowledge - and it should be, as it's so ingeniously simple - but if just one person picks up on it, it's worth my...

    LOL at this.
