3 Free Coloured Pencil Tutorials for Artists Looking to Learn  - Bonny Snowdon Academy
I’m always adding useful new resources to my website for artists who are looking for guidance. I have a collection of free tutorials and free guides that can help you with everything from drawing realistic features to figuring out which pencils are worth adding to your toolkit. 
If you’re looking to find help from one of my free tutorials, keep reading to get an idea of which ones will help you the most…
2-Hour Tulip Tutorial

This is the latest free tutorial to be added to my website, and it’s perfect for anyone who feels like branching out and trying their hand at floral drawings. 

The tutorial is 2 hours long and gives in-depth instructions, so you can feel confident while drawing. You’ll learn how to use soft pressure to layer your coloured pencils, which is really important when adding realism. You’ll also learn how to work light colour over dark, so you can create lovely, clean colours that will make your drawing look all the more realistic.

40-Minute Dog's Nose Challenge

If you need some help drawing more realistic animal features, my 40-Minute Dog’s Nose Challenge will come in really handy. Again, this is another in-depth tutorial taking you through every step of the process in real-time with a live voiceover.

I’ll teach you how to use the subtraction technique, so you can add realism by not only adding colour but by removing it, and so you can easily create the tricky, bumpy texture and shine of a dog’s nose.
