Explore the rich, colorful world of pastels, without the mess! Artist Colin Bradley shares essential techniques for drawing a realistic cat portrait and landscape with pastel pencils.
Meet Colin Bradley and start class by diving right into your first project: a tabby cat drawing. Start your drawing at the top and work your way down to the ears and top of the head. You'll learn how to layer and blend colors to create realistic fur texture.
Finish up your cat's face by drawing in the eyes and soft pink nose. Colin shows you how to create a glassy cat eye and lifelike textures around the nose and mouth.
Next, draw in your cat's neck and body, before finishing up with background work and final details. Colin guides you through creating subtle shading in longer fur, and a smooth transition between your subjects and background.
