Color Pencil Portraits
This step by step lesson illustrates and explains the drawing techniques used to create a realistic color pencil portrait.
In our Color Pencil Portrait Lesson we lead you from the first marks that you make on the paper, building up your skills through the key stages of our drawing technique to create a realistic portrait. Our slide show illustrates the development of our color pencil portrait and lets you observe the drawing process from start to finish. Once you see the step by step development of our portrait, you will understand that the drawing process is quite methodical and not as complex as it looks.
Each of our lessons below leads you through a different section of the portrait, illustrating and explaining that part of the drawing from start to finish.
