How to apply the techniques learnt to colour their animals


Have you ever wished you could paint animals?

Would you love to be able to draw AMAZING pets and animals you never thought possible?

With this course, you will learn the techniques and skills to be able to do just this.

Pastel Pencils

In my 30+ Years of Experience I have found that Pastel Pencils is the by far the easiest art medium to pick up and learn.

When you have finished this course not only will you walk away with 4 AMAZING animal paintings but you will also be able to apply what you have learnt to draw your own pictures.


Each subject requires just a few colours and there are just 17 pencils in total that you need to draw all 4. You do not have to use the exact same brand as me either :-)

The colours are as follows:

Faber-Castell PITT Pastel Pencils

  • 273 warm grey IV

  • 181 payne's grey

  • 199 black

  • 131 coral

  • 187 burnt ochre

  • 283 burnt sienna

  • 101 white

  • 192 indian red

  • 182 burnt ochre

  • 175 dark sepia

  • 170 may green

  • 186 terracotta

  • 191 pompeian red

  • 176 van dyck brown

  • 143 cobalt blue

  • 109 dark chrome yellow

  • 106 light chrome yellow

Pastel Paper

The paper I use is a fabriano ingres pastel paper in sand colour (160gsm thickness). This is a great paper for starting out as you can erase mistakes easily! If you do not have this paper then you can use another paper that you prefer.

Outline Drawing

I provide you with an outline drawing for each portrait so that you do not have to draw the subject free hand. Trace this through to your paper using preferably a graphite transfer sheet like tracedown or print it straight out using your home printer.

Step by Step Instructions

I walk you through step by step with video instruction how to draw each stage. You'll learn techniques behind drawing beautiful animal portraits and create pictures you can be proud of.

With just a small amount of pencils you will see the AMAZING effects you can get.

Let your journey into drawing and painting animals start here.
