It's All About Colored Pencils!

Circulism Technique

A colored pencil technique created by Maggie Toole in 1992. It is very similar to pointilism, but instead you draw, overlap, and intertwine circles in various sizes and colors layer upon layer. It is a great technique to obtain realistic skin texture.
