Draw & Paint Wildlife with Pastel Pencils with Colin Bradley, Part 1

Colin Bradley brings his pastel tips back to ArtistsNetwork.tv with Draw & Paint Wildlife with Pastel Pencils, Part 1. In this video workshop, you'll learn to use your pastel pencils to paint realistic wildlife step by step. From the comical grin and deep, dark hair of a chimpanzee, to the classic black and white fur and serene expression of a panda, to the wonderfully varied markings on a tiger, Colin guides you from initial photo and line drawing to finishing highlights. Along the way he shares techniques for stroke-work, blending and layering. By the end of this video you will have animals that come to life on the paper.

In this preview you will paint the shiny nose of a panda, creating dimension with highlights and shadows for a realistic effect. Visit http://artistsnetwork.tv/for access to the full-length version of this video.
