The Difference Between Polychromos and Luminance Colored Pencils

If you have been using colored pencils to draw, you should also become aware of the different types of colored pencils which may vary in terms of color intensity and hardness or softness of lead. When it comes to choosing the best colored pencils and knowing the difference between one brand and another, Emmy certainly knows a lot because she is an accomplished artist herself.

Emmy started drawing in 2014, and she has been using a wide range of colored pencils to create beautiful images and portraits.

In this video tutorial, Emmy talks about the difference between Faber Castel Polychromos VS Caran d’ache Luminance colored pencils.
