VIDEO: Pencil Coloring Tutorial Using Prismacolor and Polychromos

Pencil Coloring Tutorial, showing the coloring of a cute girl stamp

I’m doing some pencil coloring in my video today. You might recognise the image as I used her for an art journal page video a couple of weeks ago but I never showed you how I colored her. So I thought I would rectify that and go through my pencil coloring process for you. I’ve used both Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils for this image, but let me know what pencils you are using for your coloring at the moment.

If you want the full list of the colors I have used then scroll down and you will also see a close-up of her face too!

    Great video Kim. I don’t have any prismatic or polychromos but I always love seeing pencil colouring. Maybe something I invest in one day. Thanks Kim. Tracy x x

    I just was going scrolling through Pinterest and clicked on your video. I am so glad I found your site. What a great video and I learned so much just watching it. I love Prisma colored pencils but have found sometimes I use a heavy hand and after watching your video I can see what a beautiful job you did without being heavy handed. Thank you so much for sharing your talents.
