Pastel Pencil Demonstrations Season 1 – Landscape

/, Pastel Pencil Demonstrations/Pastel Pencil Demonstrations Season 1 – Landscape

Welcome to our Season 1 Subject – Landscape.

Colin will demonstrate techniques behind drawing this landscape using just 12 pencils. The techniques you will learn will enable you to complete the full picture at your own pace. For this reason we have included the full outline drawing below.

As you watch each episode and learn the techniques, you can just do the various sections, or complete the whole picture if you like!

Outline Drawing:

You can chose to draw the outline free-hand (Tip: use Colin’s Square Drawing Grids to create an accurate outline) or you can trace it using a graphite carbon. Alternatively you can print it straight to Pastel Paper using your home printer.

Here’s the outline drawing and Colin’s completed for your reference. Click the images to enlarge.

Pastel Pencils Used:

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

The pencils used in this picture are: 101 White, 102 Cream, 103 Ivory, 230 Cold Grey I, 233 Cold Grey IV, 182 Brown Ochre, 181 Payne’s Grey, 169 Caput Mortuum, 170 May Green, 174 Chrome Green Opaque, 190 Venetian Red, 140 Light Ultramarine.
