Description

In this course, we take a look at drawing four different animals with pastels and pastel pencils. Each in-depth lesson series demonstrates and explains every step of the process. Learn how to master pastel techniques while exploring the subject of animals. See why this medium is perfectly suited for this subject.
The course is designed to expose the learner to a variety of animals as well as surfaces and techniques.
In the first series of lessons, we take a look at drawing a cat with soft pastels and pastel pencils on PastelMat paper. The second series features a drawing of a dog with pastels and pastel pencils on green pastel paper. After this, we explore drawing a tropical bird on pastel board with soft pastels and pastel pencils. And lastly, we draw a cow in a field with oil pastels.
This course is clearly a video course. But not all of us prefer to learn from watching videos. Some of us prefer to learn from books as well as videos, so ebooks are included as well. This course has been developed to accelerate learning by teaching to many different learning styles. Each course module includes an illustrated ebook that corresponds with the video. Every step and concept is clearly illustrated and described in each ebook.
