Brand New “HOW TO PAINT ANIMALS” eBook for Novice and Advanced Wildlife Artists – Coming SOON!

I cant believe it has been 10 years + since I wrote “Painting Wildlife in Oils” WOW doesn’t time go by fast.

It is no wonder that so many people were emailing me asking when I would come out with a follow up book aimed more towards the Novice / Advanced wildlife artist.

Well I have been working VERY hard gathering together the best demos and clearest instructions I possibly could for you all and I am excited to say that the NEW eBook is going to be released in the next couple of days 🙂

There are over 100 pages, with LOTS of large scale high res images so you can see every detail, and according to my word counter I have written over 10,000 words so far!

Here is a quick peak of just one of the photos / demos you will see in great depth on my New eBook

keep an eye on my site Learn to Paint Animals  for the release

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 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.

Giraffe Painting – Tutorial (WIP) Latest Original Oil Painting

I’ve just started to paint this magnificent African Giraffe. The photos below shows the very 1st stages – I have drawn the giraffe and scene on the canvas and also toned the canvas with Burnt Sienna, just to eliminate the stark whiteness. I’ve also started to block in the sky and distant trees / bushes.

The subsequent photos show more layesr being added as I complete the blocking in stage.
