Read from the Book

Oil and acrylic are both wonderful mediums for creating realistic pet portraits. While oils are slow-drying and acrylics dry quickly, you can achieve nearly the same result in either medium. Follow along as I introduce you to the tools and techniques I use in my own paintings. You’ll find a step-by-step guide to rendering texture, plus six step-by-step pet portrait projects for popular pets including dogs, a cat, a horse, a rabbit, and a bird. Each project will demonstrate the techniques used to achieve realistic fur and feathers and to bring life into the eyes. Let’s get started! —Lorraine Gray
