I have been refining my process for over a decade and would love to save you some time and effort by showing you exactly how I paint fur with acrylic paint. If you have been looking for a detailed, step-by-step explanation about the process behind the way I work, then this is exactly where you need to be.
This tutorial will help you overcome so many issues with realistic painting that it could even make it look easy! I will be taking a close up look at layering, glazing, trouble shooting, colour mixing, brush work and more. This could be the break through you have been needing to give your skillset and techniques the next step up.
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.
