BTW I have been working REAL HARD for days to put all of my demos and “on my easel” tutorials that I’ve done over the past 8-10 years as 2 ebooks, each one will be 50 odd pages in length and about 150 ish photos! so lots of details showing how I have tackled each subject, I hope they will be of use to some. Ishould have the 1st volume done in a couple more days.

New Art Book “On My Easel” almost ready!!!

As mentioned in my last post I have been working VERY hard on my new art ebook.

Basically it’s a look at almost all of the step by steps / tutorials and paintings I have had onmy easel in the last 8-10 years!

It started off as a small project, but last count there was almost 100 pages!!! each page has approx 3 photos on it so there is a massive 250-300 photos. I think it will be of great use to artists who are interested in seeing how I go from initial idea to finished painting in my wildlife artwork.

I’m still adding some more content at the moment and also expanding on the original text to give even more tips and secrets 🙂

Stay tuned as I hope to have it ready in just a few more days.

Here’s a sneak peek at just 2 of the 100 or so pages 🙂

Brand NEW Painting Ebook – “The Tutorials” – COMING SOON!

I’ve got something exciting to tell you all on this post (well I think it’s exciting – but perhaps I get excited too easily ha…)

My tutorial site www.jasonmorgan.co.uk has been online for over 10 years now! and in that time I’ve displayed most of the paintings I’ve completed in a step by step format, in a section called – “on my easel”.

Well as new paintings are started I display them in place of the previously completed one, so the “on my easel” page is updated frequently. But with that comes a bit of a problem, all my old step by steps are lost forever!

Soooo…. I got to thinking that it might be of real use for artists hoping to start, or improve their wildlife art, if I gathered ALL the old demos and the brand new ones too (and believe me there are LOTS!) and put them all on an ebook, so they could be easily downloaded and then read on the computer.

What better way to learn the way I tackle each painting, than to actually see the step by steps???

So that is what I am working on at the moment, compiling all my old and also brand new painting photographs, and updating the original text, plus adding lots of new thoughts and pointers – I think it’s going to help a lot of would be wildlife and general artists to understand the thought and practical processes involved in my paintings.

I HOPE to have it ready within about a week…. so watch this blog and I’ll also send out my FREE Newsletter to say when it is released.

Tiger painting – starting the details

Well the detail stage is well underway now – I’ve decided not to go too detailed on the painting, although it might look like I have painted every hair I can assure you it’s only the suggestion I have put in – remember how much smaller you are seeing it on your screens

I’ll post some details when finished just to show you.

Stil go lots to do on him, the ears, back etc plus refinement of colours with glazing at the end.

Tiger Painting – Beginning to Refine the Painting

With the underpainting now fully completed I can now begin to refine the tiger a little – bear in mind that this is still very much an underpainting and the real details haven’t been painted yet in any area.

As you all know my technique is really an improvement on each layer, as I gradually sneak up on the completion., It’s really an improvement on each previous layers mistakes 🙂

Tiger Painting – Beginning the Oil Paints

Well with the acrylic underpainting, complete and dry I am now gradually going over the underpainting with the 1st coat of oils. Here you can see that I have applied oil paints to the eye areas and also the blue side of the fur.

Another benefit of a quick acrylic underpainting is that you require less layers of the oil to give a nice opaque colour.
