How to Draw a Landscape with Soft Pastels - Blending & Layering Colors

Layering Colors & Adding Depth

I truly never thought I would love coloring with markers, but I do!! Pitt Artist Pens are perfect for this! The colors are rich and the markers/pens give you a lot of control.


Using the first 3 tips you can learn how to draw these simple flowers.

Then comes the fun part - coloring! Starting with the lightest color, fill in the space for a base. Then choose a slightly darker color to add in details. Choose another color that is even darker, but part of the same color story, and add in the finishing touches!


Once your flowers are colored, you can outline your drawing to make it pop... add highlights and shadows to create depth... and add stippling in the shading to add interest!

You could choose to stop at any point. Some people will choose a simple drawing in step number 3, while some others might want to go through all 9 steps!


On the bottom I’ve shown the Pitt artist pens I used to create these florals. Interested in trying this out? Be sure to tag Faber-Castell USA and I so we can see!

I've also included a fun printable! You can download it here!

Enjoy! Keep Creating!
