This Gauge gives some idea of the pencil coverage for Light Pressure #1, Mediums Pressure #3 and Heavy Pressure #5 which may be of assistance when completing coloured pencil tutorials. Colour swatches were completed on smooth grey mat board.
These groups are a great way of connecting and sharing with other pencil and coloured pencil artists and can also be a wonderful way of learning.
