British Wildlife Coloured Pencils

Drawing wildlife using coloured pencils

Coloured pencil wildlife art paintings and drawings. 

Detailed wildlife and botanical drawings and paintings can be gained using coloured pencils which range from student grade to professional grade.

Wildlife Drawing Classes

Wildlife Drawing Classes

Watercolours can be used to capture the beauty in the animal or plant subject using the fluidity of the paints.

Everyone's favourite! A beautiful owl resting amongst the bluebells.

Watercolours can be used in a variety of wildlife paintings for different effects based on creative preferences. For the traditional, realistic bird and wild animal paintings, dry applications of paint are built up slowly to create depth and form…
