    The clear instruction will guide you from step 1 to done with helpful tips along the way. You'll master a new surface and new techniques that will breathe life into your pet portraits.

    What you'll learn
    Water Underpainting: Blending dry Caran d'Ache Aquarelle pencils with water will form the first layers of color and add more depth and volume to your finished drawing. You'll then use Faber-Castell pencils to add detail on top of the underpainted surface.

    Drawing on Pastelmat: The soft blue background chosen for this project will allow the white fur coat to pop and also saves you time - you don't have to draw a background! Pastelmat's smooth surface can also handle layer after layer to get details just right.

    Realistic Fur: Donna helps you pay attention to the shape and direction of the fur as your drawing and notice patterns in texture and lighting to create a stunning, shiny coat. 

    Draw... Frame... Bask in your talent!

Looked at it but have not started yet. This will be the first colored pencil I have done. Have always painted with acrylics.

Loved this project. I have a terrier and used the template to turn it into a portrait of her. I find that I don't have the colors in the lessons so I have to try to match them with what I have. I plan to do this one again. Great fun.

Great way to learn

I’m really enjoying this. I’m a beginner and find the written material very helpful, the step by step approach gives me confidence and the pictures are so useful too. I’m loving the pastel mat and am grateful to have two pieces of pastel mat with this item, helps me to know I can try again. Because I’m a beginner I would have enjoyed a video tutorial to help my learning. Saving up for the DVD’s as I need to learn and practice the basics, but this tutorial is a lovely way to learn and practice.

In Depth

The E Book experience was very high quality and a great insight into creating realism with colour pencils. I normally draw black and white as I have some tonal blindness but like any medium just takes time and understanding to create wonderful art.
