In this quick video Colin offers tips for creating and adjusting your outline drawings on pastel paper before colour the picture using pastel pencils. The steps Colin refers to are:

  • Make your outline drawing (either using Square Drawing Grids or free hand)
  • Scan the drawing into your computer
  • Lighten the image on your computer so the lines appear fainter
  • Print out onto your pastel paper using your home printer
  • Using an F grade pencil, go over your drawing and make adjustments or strengthen where necessary
