Underwater Pencil: Preclass

Welcome to the Colored Pencil version of Underwater Scenes! This preclass lesson discusses supplies; if you’ve taken the Colored Pencil Jumpstart class, you likely have enough to use for this course.

A quick little video with the supplies….links are below at the end of this lesson.

Extra video

I’ve posted this on YouTube and it might be of help; it’s about hex charts and cases. If you want to make these tags, here’s the PDF for tags. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it on YT and the full supply list is in the description on that video.


The colors listed aren’t required; you can use others, most certainly. I’ve used Prismacolor in this class, because more people have picked up that Hex Chart than the other brands. However you can easily look at this little collection of color swatches from each of the lessons and pick out some colors from your collection that will work.
