Just another session or so and this original will be up for sale. Hope you think it has the effect I was after when I started it – ie a 3D, popping out of the canvas look.

Tiger Painting 1 – Wildlife Art on the Easel

Along with the Lion painting that I am just finishing off I have two Tigers paintings that I am just in the very 1st stages of starting.

The canvas size is 16 x 12in and I am using some great wild references photos from the collector who has commissioned these two paintings.

Here I have only roughed in the initial tonal painting using my standard Burnt Sienna acrylic paint. Next up will be the background.

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.

Brand New Lion Painting on the Easel

I’ve just started to paint this magnificent African lion. The photo below shows the very 1st stage – drawing the Lion on the canvas. I also toned the canvas with Burnt Sienna, just to eliminate the stark whiteness.

I always like to have company when I paint, so more often than not, I block in the eyes 1st. Here I have also continued with the face a little, just blocking in very basic tones.

Hope you like him so far 😉

Gorilla Painting – 90% Completed

Well I’m at the stage with this painting where I am just tweaking now – a glaze here and there, spending more time standing back and looking at it, than actually painting. Hope you have enjoyed the journey – seeing how I develop a commission piece.

All continue to twek then upload a new photo under good lighting so you get a better feel for him – love to hear anyones thoughts on him 🙂

Cheetah Painting – Wildlife Art – on the Easel

It’s been a real pleasure to paint my latest painting, a cheetah running at full speed!

If you do a search on the web you will find VERY few paintings of cheetahs running, even fewer running at full speed and fewer still with the cat in focus. So although it was a challenge I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I hope you think I have captured not only the speed but also the grace of this superbly adapted cat.

I have posted some images of the painting at various stages as well as the final piece.
