Beginners tutorial: How to colour a flower using Prismacolor pencils
I absolutely ADORE my Prismacolor pencils (I’ve got the 72 set of Prismacolor pencils* if you’re wondering), and have always erred towards colouring in a way that creates super bright and vibrant results.
Colouring in a more realistic-looking manner has never really given me as much joy as choosing colour combinations that make me happy…and isn’t that really what colouring is all about? Being in your happy place?
The tutorial I’ve created below is absolutely perfect for colouring beginners, and even if you don’t own Prismacolor pencils, you can easily choose similar shades and apply the same colouring techniques shown in the video below.
What you’ll need:
PC 994 – Process Red
PC 1002 – Yellowed Orange
PC 995 – Mulberry
PC 914 – Cream
PC 931 – Dark Purple
PC 947 – Dar Umber
Posca Pen*– White (Optional)

If you’re interested in seeing how the rest of this image turned out, here’s my final version. I used my Prismacolor pencils, white Posca pen, plus some good ol’ fashioned glitter and glue (very messy, so never again).
