When starting a new hobby or learning a new medium, it can be difficult knowing where to start. We have many free learning resources for those learning to draw with Pastel Pencils. These are great places to start and hopefully gives you a launch pad into trying the medium.
We have many full Pastel Pencil courses (11 in fact!) where you can learn to draw full pictures using a select number of pencils (the sunset for example only requires 6 to complete).
You can learn to draw animals, landscapes and portraits. Click below to check them out:
We also have written an extensive beginners guide which keep updated. There’s tonnes of information in there including the tools Colin uses, how to blend, how to sharpen and loads more. Click below to read the guide.
We also host a podcast (basically an online radio show) where we talk all things pastel pencil. We’ve recorded 193 episodes (a lot I know!) so there’s a huge back catalogue.
You can catch the latest episode or listen from the beginning by clicking below.
Last but not least, if you want to sit back, relax and watch Colin work his magic. We have a number of short demonstrations on our website you can watch. It’s a great way to learn the basics, click below to check them out.
We really hope you find these resources helpful to get started with Pastel Pencils.
