​’Practice beats talent’ , A quote I always kept in mind in my journey to becoming a professional artist and a quote I swear by when teaching! You can learn how to draw your favorite subjects!

I am Leontine van Vliet, a professional pencil artist based in the Netherlands. In the past years I’ve established myself as a popular pet portrait artist and art teacher. I love teaching my colored pencil, pastel and graphite techniques to help you improve your own drawing skills.

If you’d like to learn how to draw your favorite animals in a photo realistic style, you’re in the right place!
