How To: Paint a traditional puppy dog painting

Paint a traditional puppy dog painting

Everybody loves dogs, but not everybody can own one. Although… everyone can own and enjoy a painted dog. And if you want to learn how to paint a puppy dog yourself, this is the video tutorial for you. Make sure to pause the video after each step and look at the screen every few seconds while you are drawing.

"Today, I am going to show you how to paint a puppy dog. I made this video for beginner to intermediate level artists, who wish to learn about traditional painting... I will try to show you how to paint, step-by-step. While I can imagine that painting a realistic looking puppy is intimidating for someone new to art, I will try to make my instruction as clear as possible, so that you can get in to great habits for the future. Once you are in good habits, you will progress very quickly.

I split this lesson into four parts:

1.) Part one will cover what you need to know before you paint.
2.) Part two will give you an effective strategy for painting realistically The mentality of rendering (aka drawing what you see)
3.) Part three will walk you through the process of painting and I will give you tips while I paint. The process of "sculpting" a painting.
4.) Part four will actually be a separate video and it will discuss glazing... a great finishing strategy. Glazing: Finishing a painting (covered in the second video)."
