This is a great tutorial to practice creating fur markings. Since this dog is comprised of simple colors – just browns and tans – we can focus on the length, contour, and direction of the hairs without having to think about dealing with many different hues.
The lessons are in real time – from the very beginning to the end of the painting, and I’ll talk through each step, demonstrating how to mix colors on the palette and fix errors that are a natural part of any painting. The course comes with an outline drawing, the reference photo, and a list of materials.
More Fun Things…
I’ll be teaching art lessons again this week at the Moravian Historical Society Summer Camp in Nazareth, PA. Last week I did a Facebook Live demo of the project – if you missed it, you can see the replay at my FB page.
I’ve been on Facebook Live doing demos a couple times a week – the next one will be this Wednesday between noon and 12:30 p.m.
I’m working on a commission for The Seeing Eye in Morristown, New Jersey – world’s oldest guide dog school, where students learn to work with and care for their seeing-eye dog.
I hope you have a wonderful Sunday – as always, thanks for your encouragement and support!
