How to Draw with Pastel Pencils

colin bradley artistHave you always wanted to learn to draw but things have gotten in the way? Maybe you haven’t felt confident enough. Maybe you’ve thought it was too hard or you’ve had a bad experience in the past. Maybe you haven’t had time until now.

My name’s Colin Bradley and when I was at school I loved drawing. One day I was doing a picture of a firework display using coloured chalks. I was really proud of my achievement and couldn’t wait for the teacher to come round to see it. When he did come round he said: “That’s rubbish. You’ll never be any good at art.”

That one thoughtless comment stayed with me for years until I plucked up the courage to pick up a brush and started doing watercolour paintings 28 years later. I loved doing landscape work but one day someone asked me to do a picture of their pet dog. I picked up my brush and it just wasn’t working. I thought I was sunk and couldn’t get past it – I felt stumped. But then by chance I discovered Pastel Pencils and it turned the problem into a huge opportunity. I found them incredibly easy to use and discovered my own techniques to create irresistible paintings.

That was 30 years ago and I’ve been a full time professional artist ever since. Not only do I get to do something I love every single day but I get to help other people learn how to also. Over the years I’ve taught thousands to draw using pastel pencils. Some of those people were just like me, told they couldn’t draw or didn’t have potential to learn how to.

I believe that everyone has the ability to draw, it’s all in how you’re taught. The techniques I’ve used have helped total beginners produce stunning results like this:
