This 24 page step by step tutorial shows you how to create beautifully realistic portraits of older people using coloured pencils on grey mat board. It includes multiple full colour images and simple to understand instructions and the techniques learned here can be applied to any portrait of older people. This tutorial has been done using predominantly Faber Castell Polychromos, Derwent Coloursoft and Caran D'ache Pablos. If you do not have these particular brands of coloured pencil, it is recommended that you also purchase the Coloured Pencil Conversion Charts available on this site so that you will know which colours to substitute from your own range of pencils. Faber Castell Pitt Pens were also used to under-paint certain areas in this portrait. You can still complete this tutorial without using any Pitt pens. It is recommended that you read through the entire portrait before purchasing any new materials.
