Learn how to draw this Greytone picture using 5 Pastel Pencils. If you don’t want to draw the picture free hand then you can download the line drawing and print it to your favourite paper (Colin used 300gsm Watercolour paper for this one). You can also print the reference picture out to refer to along side Colin’s video. (Click the images to enlarge).

If you want to draw free-hand we’d recommend Colin’s Square Drawing Grids.

Colin used 5 Faber Castell Pitt Pastel Pencils for this picture: 101 White, 270 Warm Grey I, 233 Cold Grey IV, 181 Payne’s Grey and 199 Black. You can use any pastel pencils however Colin recommends Faber-Castell as the best brand due to their high pigmentation and durability.
