Welcome to this comprehensive masterclass where over 9 hours, you will be guided through how to create this gorgeous German Shepherd with coloured pencils. 


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


Common challenges faced when drawing with coloured pencils:


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, emphasizing the unique coat patterns, shapes 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. 

Coloured pencils require a gentle approach to blending to achieve smooth transitions and rich, realistic colours. This masterclass covers various blending techniques, including layering and burnishing, to help you create depth and vibrancy in your drawings.


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.
