I hope someone here can help me. I purchased Mark’s excellent video on portraits. He uses a yellow pencil (I purchased from SoHo Urban Artists Colored Pencils Naples Yellow Light) which works extremely well - for Mark.
My pencil will not work at all on my canvas. I have used Mark’s method of staining the canvas. I should mention I used Gesso first (dried) and then put Mark’s brown stain on top. This could be wrong. I have never being able to figure out if Mark puts the Gesso on first. This may or may not be the problem.
Can anyone advise me exactly how Mark draws up with his yellow pencil?
I’m going to start stretching a new canvas. Good quality. I don’t want to mess this up, so I will wait and hope someone will answer me.
I would be so thankful if anyone can tell me what to do.
