Description

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 amazing wild animals by following our easy step by step videos.

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.

In this course you will learn how to draw 3 stunning wild animals:

  • Red Panda

  • Baby Orangutan

  • Meerkat

When you have finished this course not only will you walk away with 3 incredible paintings but you will also be able to apply what you have learnt to draw your own pictures.

Materials

For all pictures I use 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 fairly new to pastel pencil work as you can erase so easily on the paper. I also use Faber-Castell Pitt Pastel Pencils and refer to these throughout the course. You can of course use any materials that you wish to use.

I would recommend this course for intermediate level artists. Perhaps you have tried my free courses and want to venture into the next level up or have already used Pastel Pencils before.

If you are just starting out with pastel pencils let me not discourage you from giving this subject a go, you will certainly learn a lot from the lessons and hopefully enjoy it as you do!

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 wild animals and create pictures you can be proud of.

I have broken the course down into bitesize chunks that you can follow and return to with ease.

If you love drawing and want to discover easy techniques to create stunning art that you can transfer to your own pictures then this course is for you.

Who this course is for:
  • Those that have tried Colin's free courses and want to try more challenging pictures
  • Students with some drawing experience wishing to use pastels
  • Artists that wish to learn Colin's self taught pastel pencil techniques in their own work
  • Intermediate Level Artists
