Using Mepxy Markers and coloured pencils to create depth in your pictures

Earlier this year I experimented using a few different layering methods to colour an image. I had invested heavily in colour pencils for my Christmas gifts and wanted to find ways to use them with the other media I had on hand to create vibrant images with great depth of colour.

Today I'm going to give you some tips on how to combine Mepxy markers with some colour pencils to create a wonderfully vibrant and beautiful image. 

Here's my snap guide below to take you through some steps in the creation of this project. Just a work here. The peacock tail has by far the most work in it and for this particular image that's what took the longest time to create.

Have fun with this project I loved the result I got with the deep colour of the markers and the additional depth I added with the pencils.
