    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.

Not what I expected

I expected more than entry level...so I'm a bit disappointed. It looks more like a paint by number than in depth art technique.

Very clear and well structured tutorial

The example drawings of each step together with the written instructions were just perfect.

Puppy Love: In Depth Colour Tutorial

i am still in progress doing the work. As a novice, this is a great help in setting up my work. Started a bit back to front as I am left handed. Felt maybe more deep blue to be used as I do use too much black, and realized it, went to sepia and walnut brown. However, pleased with what I have accomplished. I found the book the best type of tutorial, could so clearly steps in progress and colours used.
