Pastel Pencil Tree
You can do this one, it's easy, you just need some pastel pencils and pastel paper - here is the best part of this drawing - we will not be drawing the tree first in graphic pencil, we will be going straight in with pastel pencils.
The only hard part of this drawing was sharpening the pencils, but I will show you how I did that in a later lesson.
Have you already tried to draw something but struggled and need a little extra help, well I'm glad you are here and I hope I can help you, please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have that would help you with your drawing.
We all learn from our mistakes, so grab your pencils and start making some and remember 'practice makes perfect'
What to draw? - Flowers in flower pots or in a vase will make a great subject - I am going to add this idea to my future project list at the top of the page. You will also find lots of ideas about different things to draw when you first start out and hopefully it will help you to get started, the only thing you will need is some paper and a few pencils to get started, choose a drawing lesson and away you go.
We all have to start somewhere right?
When you first start out drawing, use any paper you have at hand, you don't want to buy expensive paper to practice on.
What Tools To Use
Not sure what tools you will need to get started, well, I will be using different mediums as I go, such as:
So follow along and you will see what they come out like, then choose for yourself what you want to use.
Colour In Drawings
Graphite & Colour
Here is a cute drawing of a little girl taking off her shoes, this is an example of a drawing done in graphite pencil with a delicate amount of pale pink added, I like this effect.
I will show you how to draw using graphic pencil and how to glam it up by adding colour.
If you want you can just leave the drawings as they are in black and white, it is entirely up to you, both ways make a nice finished drawing.
I will also show you how to blend graphite pencil to create a fabulous drawing.
How To Draw Projects
What to draw?
I'ts fine knowing how to draw, but then you need to find something to draw, where do you start?
Well it is not always easy to find drawing ideas when you have just started out.
I think sometimes we look too hard for that perfect subject, but you can take an ordinary subject and make it interesting, this is something that will come with time.
We will cover this subject in the future.
Mounting & Framing
Colour Pencil Drawing
What to do with my finished drawing?
When you have finished your piece of fabulous art, you can read how to finish your piece with a sealer (or not) and also how to mount and frame your artwork.
This German Shepherd colour pencils drawing did not look good with a square mount around it, I chose the oval mount as it looks much better.
There are many shops today where you can buy cheap frames with mounts, so if you see one you like, buy the frame first, then measure your drawing to fit the frame.
Imagine This! - Your new project is all finished, mounted and hanging on your wall, how proud are you? I bet you can't stop looking at it.
Watch as people visit you, look at their faces, I think they will also be proud and envious of you, it is a great feeling when you receive compliments on your artwork, you will love it.
