Daily Tutorial - Day 1 - layering and shading


I don't know how it came about but on Februari 1 I found myself recording Day 1 of a Daily Tutorial!
This first episode is about laying down the first layers of colour.
I am using my Faber Castell Polychromos Pencils but you can use any brand you want!


Faber Castell Polychromos Pencils are available in the Passion for Pencils Webshops.

Download the FREE PDF and colour with me!


  1. Love your tutorials and your english is absolutely spot on. I am wondering, the colors that you lay down before the first layer is applied, are the areas random with the color placement (light green, yellow, etc?) Thank you so much

  2. I really enjoyed this video, but I can't seem to find the video for the next day? Please help.

    1. I can get to the next lesson on my iPhone by swiping the screen from right to left. It takes me to the next page. I hope this helps

  3. Exellent! Thank you!

  4. I love that you explained why you added certain colors in certain areas. Many colorists just say what they’re using, but don’t give the “why.”

    And by the way, “farther” applies to distance while “further” applies to the extent of something.

    - He went farther away.
    -She went into further detail.

    Hope that helps :)
