When we think about a Dalmatian, many of us would think of white and black dog. But how can we accurately and realistically draw this on white paper without it looking flat?


What sort of subtle colours do we need to achieve a more lifelike appearance without it looking too harsh or unrealistic but still achieving depth and dimension?


In this 8 hour masterclass I will guide you step by step how to draw this beautiful Dalmatian portrait in coloured pencils.


Whether you're a beginner or an experienced artist, this class is tailored to help you overcome the above challenges and elevate your drawing skills to a professional level.


Key Lessons:


1. Achieving realistic fur texture

Many of us struggle with capturing the intricate details and textures of a dog's fur. This class will teach you techniques to create lifelike fur, emphasising the unique coat patterns, markings and textures.


2. Mastering colour blending and theory

This has taken me years to realise and has since allowed me to create portraits with so much depth. In this class I will share everything I have learnt about colour balancing and ‘hidden’ colours which helps create super lifelike portraits. 

Especially when working with a lot of white on white - It is so important to understand tones and how to gently add them to ensure we are achieving depth to the  lightest fur. 


3. Capturing lifelike eyes and other key features

The eyes are the soul of any animal portrait, and achieving that soulful gaze can be particularly challenging. I will guide you through the process of drawing realistic, expressive eyes, focusing on reflections, shadows, and the intricate details that bring them to life.


4. Layering and building depth

Building up layers to create depth and dimension can be tricky with coloured pencils. This class will show you how to layer colours effectively, adding depth and realism to your drawings without overworking any area.
