With everything that’s going on around the world with COVID-19, we feel that art and creativity is more important than ever. Art is a wonderful form of meditation and escapism from traumatic and challenging times.
Science has proven the benefits of drawing, it’s not just the act of creating in itself, but the feel good feeling of creating something you’re proud of, that helps your mind and body.
Whatever situation you’re in right now (quarantine etc), if you have the urge to pick up a pencil, we’re here.
So, for the foreseeable future we’re offering this new Tabby Cat course FREE to anyone that wants to give drawing a go. Share with your family and friends – anyone that you feel could benefit from drawing.
Whether you’re an artist eager for a new art project or someone that’s never picked up a pencil before, this course is for you.
What you need:
To draw this picture you only need 6 pastel pencils and any pastel paper of your choosing (we recommend Fabriano Ingres Paper). We’ve provided an outline drawing which you can print to pastel paper without needing to draw free hand.
We’ve also got written instructions which you can download below and follow along with the video if you prefer to follow these instead.
The 6 pencils I use are Faber-Castell Pitt Pastel Pencils. The colours are:
- 101 white
- 182 brown ochre
- 187 burnt ochre
- 273 warm grey IV
- 168 earth green yellowish
- 175 dark sepia
You can find everything you need in our store. You can even buy the pack as a hard copy, with pastel paper and pencils included. We ship worldwide and there is FREE delivery to the UK for orders over £50.
In this introduction video Colin shows you the contents of the pack, how to transfer the outline to your paper and sharpen the pastel pencils.
Follow along with Colin and create a picture you can be proud of.
