Finished Painting

Finished painting on Pastelmat 12″ x 10″

In this piece I want to show you different ways to create depth in a painting. I’ll show you how to blur areas to appear out of focus drawing our eye to where the detail is. Curls are always a challenge but with this method you’ll see how I work all the areas to different levels of detail.
The first part is footage only taking you part of the way into the dog’s face. Then there are over four hours of narrated and colour coded videos to take you through the main focus of this tutorial.
