About This Tutorial
About the Ebook
The Ebook is designed to go hand in hand with the video tutorial, and summarises the entire process. It can be purchased separately to the video if you just wanted to get an idea of how I work. However, when it comes to detailing the entire process and every layer, this Ebook only summaries it. The step by step process is shown in detail in the video.

I’m a beginner, will this tutorial be good for me?
This tutorial has been created for everyone! However, the way I work requires patience, persistence and a bit of determination to push through to the final layers. If you are excited by the idea of painting realistically, but have never done it before, this tutorial will break down the process for you and hopefully help you understand acrylic painting better as a whole.
I paint in oils, will this tutorial help me?
Yes! The techniques I have been using originally come from the oil painting world. The main difference between doing this tutorial with acrylic or oils is the drying time between layers (and the materials you would be using). The glazing and layering process is perfect for those working with oil paint too.
If I need your help, can I contact you?
You sure can, it is best to send me an email with all your questions and I will respond as soon and as detailed as I can.
Why does this tutorial only cover brown fur?
This tutorial is focussed on my most used colour palette, and is a foundational study that you will be able to take so much further into your own practice. I’m not teaching you to copy me, I’m teaching you the essential skills that you will be able to take and transform into your own creative language.
Is the painting done in real time or in time-lapse?
