About This Class

Coloring with colored pencils can take a lot of time. If you use Panpastel for the underpainting you will be able to color twice as fast as before! 

In this class I will show you how to use panpastel and how to combine it with colored pencils. We are going to draw a bird (kingfisher) where we use panpastel for the underpainting and the colored pencils for the details. You will be able to follow along step by step. Panpastel works really fast, blends really well and is great for backgrounds too.

If you haven't used panpastel before Im sure you will love it as much as I do!

Creating is my passion and I'm happy to share it with you!

I believe when it comes to drawing, it's not all about talent, it's about having the motivation to become better. I have learned so much through practice alone. If I can do it, you can do it!

Make sure to follow to stay up to date with all future classes.
