I'm new here in Pastels. I usually do watercolours, but I'd like to try out doing animal portraits in pastel pencils.
I found the Colin Bradley website with the cat and dog demos and there will be a show of his drawing cats video on The Painting & Drawing channel next week. He uses Faber Castell pencils, which are from Germany, but the Colin Bradley set of 24 isn't available here. It would be expensive to order it from the UK, but I can't find the list of colours it contains to buy them individually. Since a lot of his demos are animal portraits I think his palette of colours would be more useful to me than the all purpose set. So my questions is, can someone here send me a list of the colours the Colin Bradley set contains? The numbers would do. Or do you have some suggestions which 24 colurs would be most useful (for backgrounds too)?
Any help greatly appreciated. And thank you for all the informative threads about doing fur and eyes and things in pastel. They'll keep me busy for a while and give me a good start.
