MATERIALS

TECHNIQUES

Invest in a pack of colored pencils or felt-tip pens, and try to replicate the lightness and darkness of each shade. It’s the light and dark triangles sitting side by side that give the images their depth and amazing 3-D look.

Stay inside the lines and keep your pencils sharp so you have maximum control in the smaller areas. Sharpen your pencils frequently to achieve crisp, clean images.

If you don’t have colored pencils or felt-tip pens, you could try watercolors or paint, and mix your own colors to create the right shade. But stay away from pastels as these are quite thick and it will be difficult to fill in the smaller triangles. Avoid charcoal too as this is likely to smudge, ruining all your hard work.

If the color of your pencil doesn’t quite match our color palette, try blending, cross-hatching, and adding more layers until you get the color you want. Take your time—a masterpiece was never created in a day!

To achieve a darker shade, try layering the color until you

get the right shade.

Pressing harder with your colored pencil should also achieve this result.

Dark

If you are struggling to create a particular shade, try substituting that color for one you have available, or you could create your own color palette—just remember to keep dark shades dark and light shades light.

USING THE COLOR PALETTE Two color palettes have been created alongside the illustrations in this book. The natural palette is based on the dog’s natural coloring and the vivid palette can be used to create a more vibrant and graphic look. Look out for the animal’s natural color palette at the top of each design.

NO NUMBER?

On the main illustration, if a triangle doesn’t have a number that area is white, so there is no need to color it in. USING THE NATURAL PALETTE

The key to getting your dogs to look like the original image is to follow the natural palette as closely as possible.

USING THE VIVID PALETTE

If you’re looking for something a bit brighter, or just a bit different, try our vivid color palettes. FREESTYLING

Avid colorers will spot that there are no color palettes on the patterned pages for the Chinese Crested, bull terrier, or Airedale terrier. There are also “color me in” versions of the openers for each section. These dogs have been left unnumbered so you can let your imagination run wild. This is your chance to experiment with different colors and techniques. Why not create your own color palette around your favorite color, or create a wacky pattern using a pop art style? For the best results, think about your shading. Imagine where the sun would catch the dog in real life and try to keep those areas lighter than areas in the shade. The diagrams on page 12 show how the same color can be used in different ways to achieve this.
