How to Draw a Heart in Pencil – Blending Technique

I thought I would continue the pencil drawing theme and draw a heart in pencil, but this time I’m taking it slowly as my Patreon Patron, Jenny, says she has difficulty drawing even simple curves for a heart. Most of the time I’m just drawing in a pretty scribbly, loose, relaxed sort of way and pretty quickly too – I don’t want my audience to get bored! But the secret to getting those curves really smooth is to take your time, draw very gently so its easy to erase any mistakes along the way!

Learn to draw Cat and Dog – Big Cat Series

I am so thrilled to finally have copies of How to Draw Cat and Dog.

I’ve been using the Cat and Dog books in reception and nurseries for some time and I’m always amazed – sometimes almost moved to tears – by the quality of the drawing the very young children draw along with me.

I’ve wanted to make this book for a while and finally convinced Big Cat to let me do it. It’s also a phonics book, which made it hard choosing the right words to describe key words for explaining drawing, that I couldn’t use because of the language levels. For circles – I used rings.

I am so proud of how it came out. Many thanks to my editor, Catherine Coe, for helping to squeeze it all into the phonics box.

Cat and Dog teach you how to draw cat and dog in a story – yes, there is a story too! Learn also how to draw a tree so Cat has somewhere to hide when Dog starts chasing. With all that drawing, you have everything you need to write and illustrate a simple story – even key words.

What more could anyone want in a Reception/Kindergarten/Early years Foundation class?
