Pencil Portrait Tutorial Video

Portraits not only capture a likeness, but offer for generations to come a glimpse into the subject’s life. Sounds like quite a challenge. But with Ann Kullberg’s help, it’s not as difficult as you might think to create lifelike colored pencil portraits.

Hats off to Ann Kullberg as an artist and a teacher. I learned to paint colored pencil portraits using this book. I will not say I have NO experience with colored pencils. Many years ago, my mother, who is an artist mostly in water color, took a class in photorealistic pet portraits.

She liked it and showed me how to do a project: cat’s eyes. THAT’S ALL of my experience with colored pencil previous to Kullberg’s book. After reading Kulberg’s books, I am turning out colored pencil people that are impressing family and friends.

In fact, I am surprising even myself. I look at a picture I’ve done and think, “Wow! I can’t believe I did that!”Chapter 1 is Getting Started, where Kullberg shows the materials the colored pencil artist needs.

Kullberg uses 23 different colors to create skin tones, and roughly 80 colors altogether. At $1.50-$2.00 each (depending on where you buy them–my local art supply sells them less expensively than the national craft chain), pencils are the main expense.

I’m using 19 colors for skin tones. She gives a great trick for using your pencils right down to the nubbins.Chapter 2 is Composing a Portrait. Here, Kullberg gives general guidelines for good composition and cropping.

She also gives several ways to capture images if you are not a good freehand drawer. Using reference photos, you can trace, draw with a grid, or use a slide projector and 35mm slide. (To become a better freehand drawer, and artist in general, who can beat Betty Edwards’ “Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain”?)Chapter 3, Seeing the Light, is about using deep contrast to capture the play of light.

Kullberg uses her older work as an example of “what not to do.” Funny thing is, as a viewer, I totally disagree with her assessment. I much prefer her older work. I find it painterly, intimate, and quiet; less photographic than the style she settled on.

My feeling is, if I want to see photorealism, I’ll look at a photo! Still, my taste aside, the reader does learn how to render very strong light. Kullberg is a Pacific Northwesterner, and as a former Pacific Northwesterner, I can well understand her obsession with sunlight.

She paints squintingly bright portraits, I moved to Albuquerque.In Chapter 4, the reader learns about Creating Believable Skin Tones. This is a very detailed chapter with excellent advice for accurate rendering.

It includes sections on Black and Asian skin tones, but you are on your own for Mediterranean skin tones. Still, the general principles apply. I don’t follow her same technique exactly, but used it as a springboard for a–what shall I say?–more seat-of-the-pants process.

She is very affirming as a teacher, and would encourage any student to discover what works best for them.Chapter 5 is Painting Features and the Face. There are sections for the mouth, the ear, the nose and the eyes.

She shows two step-by-step examples of how and in what order one might paint a face.Cahpter 6 is Painting Hair. She says, “It’s really not as difficult as you might think.” How right she is! There are sections on dark hair, light brown hair, blond hair, red hair, curly hair, kinky hair, and the crew cut (which also works for stuffed animal fur).

Chapter 7 gives directions for Painting Fabric, from solid cotton, patterns and plaids, to denim, polished fabrics and knits.Chapter 8 is Putting It All Together. She gives two examples of a painting sequences for complete portraits.

She also gives advice for those who would like to develop a business of commissioned portraits, as she has done, including advice on pricing.If you want to learn to paint people in corored pencil, you will not be disappointed in this book.

How do you know if colored pencil would be an enjoyable medium for you? You will like colored pencil of you are obsessive about detail, and don’t mind projects that move very slowly. A well-sharpened pencil point will not have many brushes that can rival it in fineness.

Ann Kullberg is also the author of Capturing Soft Realism in Colored Pencil.

Lovely book. Many artists freeze when it comes to portraits or life drawing. Perhaps it is a mental fear of attempting to create an image of something that is real, live and with personality. Also, creating a life drawing is just different from sketching a tree, or flower or any other still life until you get past the fact that you are drawing a HUMAN.

The book has some good concepts and steps for portrait/human figure artwork. Nice explanations on washes and shading and methods of initially sketching the portrait without becoming overly wrapped up in creating photographic details.

This is a good reference book to have.

Colored Pencil Painting Portraits: Master a Revolutionary Method for Rendering Depth and Imitating Life Paperback

Sanford Prismacolor Premier Water-Soluble Colored Pencils, 12 Pack

Using her own beautiful portraiture for instruction and inspiration, Kullberg walks you through the process step by step—from basic information about materials and techniques to two demonstrations that show how complete portraits come together from beginning to end.

I really like this book. It has good hints, and a good discussion about skin tone colors. I liked the tone of the book, the approach is very easy going. I really liked the addition of discussing portraits/art as a business.

The cons:There wasn’t a discussion about various age groups, wrinkles, freckles or skin textures. Most of the subjects are children or teens.There was only one subject that was with a darker skin tone, and honestly I wanted to see more examples.

Over all, I will definitely go back to this book for reference.

Comment: Very light wear. No marking or writing. Good binding. Eligible for FREE Super Saving Shipping and Amazon Prime!

If you’re looking for a book for human portraits, composition, getting skin tone and fabric texture right this is it. I didn’t give it five stars for a few reasons but first the list.Pros:1. Excellent advice on setting up a small work space.

Dated, but still relevant so don’t ignore it.2. Goes over details like hair, the face, cloth, etc.3. Really goes through composition in detail.4. Lighting in the image which is something I don’t see discussed much in general.

5. Giving the image depth and showing excellent examples.6. Great lessons on color selection.7. Goes through selecting elements and combining people from different photos into the same drawing.8. Gives excellent detailed advice on lifting color.

9. Isolating value tips and tricks.10. Repetitive layering of color demonstrations according to type: Skin, clothes, hair texture, etc.11. Detailed discussion and suitable colors list for SKIN! Sure it’s for Prismacolor but you have color squares you can match your own brand to.

This book does not lack in size or quantity of the color examples she refers to which is really handy. Don’t despair if you don’t use Prismacolor.12. Covers image transfer and how to work with photographs.

If you aren’t sure then she gives you a lot of good information. Just make sure you aren’t given degraded photos to work with.Cons:1. Only covers Prismacolor pencils that require too much sharpening.2.

Doesn’t blend her colors the way more contemporary colored pencil artists do, which leaves the odd rough crayon texture in some of her drawings. I really like her examples where that texture just doesn’t look like it’s there so this may be a personal preference.

Ignore it if that’s something you like. ;-)3. Keeps referring to “sticky stuff” but I’m not sure if she’s referring to Sticky Tack or a kneadable eraser. A kneadable eraser would be much better for lifting color.

Sticky Tack isn’t good for anything anymore. You can use a acid free tape to stabilize your drawing to a surface and it can be reusable and cheap. Even masking tape can help so you don’t have Sticky Tack residue on your paper.

4. Doesn’t really discuss suitable papers. She uses Stonehenge but doesn’t cover the fact you need to buy sheets online rather than in the store because people get their grimy hand oils all over them. If you do buy in store make sure they’re wrapped in plastic.

I’ve heard that the Stonehenge in pads don’t have the same tooth quality as the separate sheets do.5. No discussion on lightfast ratings or archival paper quality6. No discussion of life drawing, it’s just copying photos and transferring the image over using the grid system.

However she does a lot of work on kids so I can see why. If you expect anything else just realize that is not in this book. Also a personal preference so don’t worry too much.While it was printed in 1999, this is still a really good book I think for people who really want to focus on human portraits.

Ann Kullberg really goes through several examples for people to see how framing, composition, lighting and color all work for portraits and that isn’t easy to find. People may think a dated book like this is bad but I disagree.

She has it packed with more than enough information and tutorials to get you going and keep you very busy. The information is excellent for fundamentals in portraiture and they are very clearly illustrated with detail explanations underneath.

She has an open and friendly writing style that takes a very technical and time consuming passion and makes it more approachable regardless of skill level. It might seem a bit “nit picky” but the book I think is a really good value.

If the list doesn’t have what you’re looking for then maybe you might want to do a video tutorial search. I find that does offer several answers to my one nagging question but since the weather has been terrible here I need options that don’t require a computer or tablet to refer to.

Suggestions:She shows you a how to make a skin color chart, but if you want to match colors or values then take your ENTIRE set of colored pencils and other drawing supplies to make color charts and value charts with them.

Just do it when you’re in front of a TV or waiting. It’s worth doing this tedious task I promise you.I’m thinking of making complementary color charts or green charts for an underpainting technique. Your color chart/value chart should ideally be made from the paper you’ll be using the most but I find Bristol vellum or smooth (depending on you) works just fine for now.

Let’s just say you’ll really get to know your pencils. ;-DThere are so many options for paper so I recommend writing down what you’ll use your colored pencils and other supplies for and then go looking for a paper that meets your criteria.

Just because it’s the most expensive doesn’t mean it’s the best either so be sure to bargain shop and buy small quantities to experiment with.Enjoy this book and it’s information. I’m really glad I got the book and think it’s a great reference book too.
