Re: Siberian White Tiger two

Thanks Karen,
Jasonís (onlineart) work in progress threads are the ones to study. Heís more than helpful to us all.
Iím a bit hit and miss messy painter who get there eventually. I show most of my work as they progress and most turn out satisfactory for me personally. I just enjoy painting, itís like an addiction and sometimes I turn out a cracking image.
Painting fun
Gary

Re: Siberian White Tiger two

Many Thank Jason & Nickib for your inspiriting kind comments.
Yes Dave and thanks, I feel Iím getting what I want out of this image.

Kind thanks Karen, Closeup give you more insight into the simple brush work.
Following Jason technique for fine detailing is probably amongst one of the best styles on wet canvas in oils. The trick is for fur to stand out as fur they should be detailed over a darker dried under paint. This can be done during many stages of glazes, allowing each glazed detail to dry before the next.
As Iíve said before I have more of a sloppy style of a similar technique which is practised by Jason to perfection. So following his book is a great idea.
Painting fun
Gary
