This is a 47 page comprehensive in-depth coloured pencil tutorial with full step-by-step instructions on how to draw this gorgeous border collie dog. I cover how to create both black fur and white fur (two colours that many people struggle with), how to draw a dog's tongue as well as teeth and gums.


This tutorial features larger high resolution images than tutorials #1 and #2, with the option of being able to zoom in to see my work up close in as much detail as you wish. Learn my coloured pencil techniques and tips in creating this beautiful drawing. I share an array of coloured pencil knowledge and my personal technique in creating a lifelike and vibrant drawing. I provide a detailed and comprehensive step-by-step instructional approach ideal for both beginners and intermediate artists looking to improve their techniques.


This drawing was created using mainly Caran d'Ache Luminance, Caran d'Ache Museum Aquarelle and Derwent Lightfast pencils with a few single pencils from the Polychromos, Pablo and Derwent Drawing ranges. If you dont have these pencils I have provided a colour swatch guide so you can easily indentify and substitute for your own favourite brand.
