I recently asked on my Instagram stories what you’d wish you’d known when starting your coloured pencil journey or things that you struggle with now. 

The three main answers were layering, blending and colour theory/contrast so I’ve compiled all of my knowledge into a 3.5 hour beginner friendly Masterclass where we draw this shiny snaffle together. 


Drawing shiny objects can be challenging. Especially silver ones as there tends to be a strong but seamless contrast of warm and cold greys plus some hidden colours which create a realistic form.


In this 3.5 hour class, I wanted to share with you exactly how to draw this lifelike Snaffle bit using Faber Castell Polychromos pencils. I focus a lot of how to build contrast and the illusion of shine whilst keeping edges soft and blended which adds to the realistic look. 


Working with just Faber Castell Polychromos pencils on Strathmore 300 Bristol smooth, i guide you step by step how to gently layer pencils to create a seamless blend between colours to build shine, depth and contrast.


I loved drawing this one and I can’t wait to see you give this one a go! 🤍


Perfect for those just starting their coloured pencil journey as well as those looking to brush up their skills or maybe you are on a tight budget, this masterclass will teach you the skills needed for you to produce beautiful drawings with minimum materials.
