What do you use for the highlights in your drawing?

In some of our lessons, we use our AFKH or Bianyo markers on marker paper and then create highlights with a white Prismacolor colored pencil. 

We'll leave the white paper showing through if we want the highlight to be bright! Other times, we'll layer the white colored pencil on top of the marker. Watch this video to learn more and see it in action.

Prismacolor pencils are the best, they're a little more expensive than other brands, but it's worth it! 

Visit our art supply page for more information about the supplies we love. You'll also find links to purchase the same supplies on Amazon.

We also love using white gouache paint with a fine brush! This is a little more advanced but a fun way to make the highlights SUPER WHITE!
