Shades of Gray

H appy Memorial Day weekend! I hope many of you will use this time to relax and let your creative flags fly.

 To help inspire you over the long weekend, our Fine Art Consumer Specialist, Diana has put her expertise on film and created an EXCLUSIVE tutorial just for us!

Check it out!

Shading with Prismacolor Art Markers can sometimes seem a little intimidating, but once you put Diana’s tips to work, you’ll be a shading Sensai!

On a more serious note, I want to take a minute and thank all the veterans who make it possible for all of us to express our creative spirits everyday.  I know I will be keeping all our veterans  in my thoughts, not only this weekend but always,  thank you for your service!

Is anyone doing any special work in honor of those who’ve served over the weekend? We would love to see it!  Please share your work with us on Facebook and in the Prismacolor Studio.

Have a great weekend and Happy Memorial Day!

P.S – I will be posting more tutorials as we make them, so, keep checking back!  If you want to see something specific, let us know- We LOVE suggestions, so post a comment we will do our best to answer your questions.

    Enjoyed the lesson. It makes me want to try it right now.

  3. I am a retired art educator. You did a very nice art piece and showed that an individual would not need to have an extensive range of colors to create art. The shades of gray is an excellent example that showcases the basic need for value in a piece of art. You provided examples that utilized different colors for different effects should an individual decide to branch out and try new ideas. Very nice….

      thanks for the great response! I appreciate your kind words and hope to create more short videos for this avenue.

  4. Diana,
    Your Utube video on drawing the Horse was GREAT! You are a super artist and have a clear, organized approached to drawing that lets beginners thru advanced have great insight on how to add value to a drawing using the Prismacolor Markers. Great Job!
