Draw Marilyn Monroe with Pastel Pencils

//Draw Marilyn Monroe with Pastel Pencils

IMG_0529Welcome our free Pastel Pencil Course!

We hope you’re excited to give this subject a go as Colin was producing this course. Please see below how to get the outline drawing printed off and the pencils you need.

With every tutorial Colin provides an outline drawing, meaning that you do not have to draw the picture free-hand. We have provided this outline drawing below. Colin recommends pictures to be drawn at A4 size, you can scale up your pictures using square drawing grids or you print the line drawing bigger.

Colin chooses and refers to the Faber-Castell Pitt Range of Pastel Pencils as these are his preferred make. The Faber-Castell range have a higher pigmentation and are more robust compared to other brands.

However, you can use any brand of pastel pencils to complete the picture. You can compare the colours with our Faber-Castell Colour Chart.
