In Draw & Paint Wildlife with Pastel Pencils with Colin Bradley, Part 1 (https://artistsnetwork.tv/p-260-draw-paint-wildlife-with-pastel-pencils-with-colin-bradley-part-1.aspx), playing now on artistsnetwork.tv (http://www.artistsnetwork.tv), 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 strokework, 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 artistsnetwork.tv (http://www.artistsnetwork.tv) for access to the full length version of this video.
