What are Coloured Pencils?
We’ve likely all heard of and used coloured pencils, but have you seen them used in way to create beautiful pet portraits? With this course you will learn the fundamentals behind using coloured pencils in a unique way to create amazing works of art.
When you have finished this course not only will you walk away with a beautiful picture but you will also be able to apply what you have learnt to draw your own work.

The paper I use is light grey PastelMat Paper. It has a sandpaper like texture and if you don’t have this you can use another similar textured paper like UART 800 Grade Paper.
They key to the amazing results you see in these pictures is a blending solvent. The one I use is Zest It and it’s a great product for coloured pencil drawing.
I use a selection of Round Brushes to apply the solvent such as Sizes 1, 2, 4 and 6.
In the first lectures you will learn the main principles behind using coloured pencils. You can watch these at your leisure and there’s no copying required, we just want to run you the materials and techniques.
With this class you will have the outline drawing and my finished picture to work from.
You can trace the outline through to your drawing surface or you can choose to draw it free hand.
