    What you'll learn
    Faber-Castell Polychromos: The smooth, creamy application of these pencils on Pastelmat creates such luscious colors, you might wonder why you ever used anything else! Donna has selected 20 pencils to make up this multi-colored dog portrait and you'll use each one to build rich, varied hues in the fur, eyes and face of this adorable pup.

    Drawing on Pastelmat: The soft background chosen for this project will allow the curly fur coat to pop and also saves you time - Pastelmat is all the rage because of it's forgiving properties and the smooth surface can also handle layer after layer to get details just right.

    Expressive Features: Donna helps you through the tricky part of creating multiple highlights in this dog's soulful eyes. She will also teach you to pay attention to every highlight and shape so that you can master building believable fur colors from white to tawn to dark brown.

Puppy love in depth tutorial

I enjoyed the tutorial but I used a dark green pastelmat and it was very difficult to cover the green with the white polychromos. I would advise others to stay with a white background and do some practice first with curly dog hair. It was a challenge, I actually abandoned it after step 13 but will try again on white paper. Its a cute subject.
