Substituting products on Mixed Media Paper!

Hi friends! Have you ever seen a tutorial that you would like to try only to find out that you don’t have the supplies the artist is using? I think we have all been there. Today I will show yuo how to get a very similar look with 3 different media so hopefully you can find a product that will suit your style or give you ideas on how to make what you have work better!

I also want to mention that this painting took nearly 4 hours so please don’t expect similar results in 30 minutes. I didn’t want to time lapse this so I had Jason edit it down but keep it real time so you could get a feel for the techniques better but I realize that might make you think it was drawing quicker than it was and I like to keep it real:) Often when someone isn’t happy with their art (especially colored pencil or marker) it’s because it’s not done yet. I hope this video inspires you!

Here is a closer look at the artwork:

Colored pencil with touches of white pen

Adding a base media can save time and give great results!

Watercolor base with colored pencils & white pen.

And my favorite…

Alcohol marker base with colored pencils and white pen.

Which one did you like best? Happy crafting!

  1. Hi Lindsey,I’ve noticed recently on YouTube videos that the ads are extremely long. Do you know, is that because they now want you to have a subscription?Have always loved YouTube for learning, now it is very frustrating.Can you let me know what you know on this?Thanks, Gwen Gwen Gordon – email:


    1. I have seen the prompt to subs to be to YouTube premium to remove ads but I just click no thanks. Feel free to skip long ones. If an ad plays for 30 seconds the YouTuber gets paid for the adview. I think thete are a lot of long ads because other youtubers are promoring their videos as ads to get their numbers up. You can skip those long ads after a few seconds and I think they will show you fewer in the future. In general I have no idea why YouTube dies what it does 😆
