Finished Painting

This painting gave me the perfect opportunity to create a tutorial all about black and white fur. The difficulty is creating those soft edges and keeping each part clean from each other. It is also a very useful tutorial for white fur in particular. One of the most difficult colours to paint.
These in depth videos talk about the mark making and the colour choices that will achieve realistic fur.

And like with many of my reference photo downloads, I provide you with relevant reference you can use to practise the techniques I’m teaching.
