Have you ever wished you could draw?
Would you love to be able to draw AMAZING pictures you never thought possible?
With this course you’ll learn to draw 3 animal pictures using JUST 9 PENCILS!
Pick up and Learn
In my 30+ Years of Experience I have found that Pastel Pencils is the by far the easiest art medium to pick up and learn.
Whether you’re completely new to drawing or are looking to try something new, this course is for you.
You’ll learn how to draw a:
•King Charles Spaniel
•Black Cat
•Pig Portrait
When you have finished this course not only will you walk away with 3 AMAZING paintings but you will also be able to apply what you have learnt to draw your own pictures.
The pencils I use and recommend are Faber-Castell Pitt Pastel Pencils. You can use any pencils you like however you’ll hear me refer to the Faber-Castell colours specifically throughout the course.
The 9 Pencil Colours needed for the pictures are:
•101 white
•199 black
•273 warm grey IV
•131 medium flesh
•173 olive green yellowish
•176 van dyck brown
•186 terracotta
•187 burnt ochre
•191 pompeian red
The paper I use is Sand Coloured Fabriano Ingres Paper, this is a great neutral tone and works so well for all kinds of subjects. It is ideal for someone new to pastel pencil work as you can erase mistakes!
I provide you with an outline drawing for each subject so that you do not have to draw free hand. Trace this through to your paper or print it straight out using your printer.
I walk you through step by step with Video instruction how to draw each stage. You’ll learn techniques behind drawing beautiful animals and create pictures you can be proud of.
If you have always wanted to learn how to draw then this course is for you. With just a small amount of pencils you will see the AMAZING effects you can get with no previous experience.
Let your journey into drawing and painting start here.
