What do you use for the highlights in your drawing?

In some of our lessons, we use 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. 

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!
