Overview Drawings done on coloured paper can help you to use a wide range of light to dark values in your drawings. Draw the darker values with black and add highlights with a white. The colour of the paper is one of the values of your drawing. This will make your drawing look as if it is popping out of the paper.
- Choose an animal to draw and a paper colour that best suits your animal.
- Sketch a rough drawing of your animal on plain white paper and transfer your drawing on to coloured paper.
- Draw an animal with markers and a black pencil.
- Paint highlights with liquid whiteout and a white pencil.
