Painting Oscar the Dog
Learn to create fluffy, textured fur in this narrated demonstration of painting Oscar the dog. A portrait of a dog is still a portrait, and requires careful paint application to create the effect of painterly, soft fur. Learn how to work with your paints and brushes to suggest detail without labouring over it.
This course is divided into three lessons: the underpainting, a live demonstration of a partial first pass, and finishing the painting.
A real-time demonstration of creating an underpainting, or imprimatura, and painting the background. No narration.
