When it comes to choosing a subject, flowers are a perennial favorite for artists because of their exciting variety and complexity of color, texture and detail. It's amazing, then, that their vibrant natures can be captured so realistically with the simple and direct medium of colored pencil. The "secret" is making the most of colored pencil's distinctive translucent properties with techniques such as layering, burnishing and underpainting.

Arranged alphabetically from azalea to zinnia for easy reference, these demonstrations detail the methods and specific colors for creating a variety of flowers.
