Live Lessons: Dog Portrait on Black Canvas
About This Lesson Series...
In this lesson series, we paint a portrait of a dog on black canvas with oils. Painting on a black surface encourages darker values and contrast. Instead of focusing on adding darker tones, we instead focus on adding the lighter values and tints.
Lesson 1 (1:08:30)
In lesson one, we sketch out the contours of the dog on plain paper and discuss the process of transferring our image to the final canvas.
Lesson 2 (1:15:10)
In lesson two, we begin to apply oil paint using a soft, scumbled application.
Lesson 3 (1:11:32)
In lesson three, we continue working on the face of the dog, working our way to the left.
Lesson 4 (1:11:59)
In lesson four, we develop the texture of the nose of the dog.
Lesson 5 (1:05:50)
In lesson five, we begin painting the texture of the fur.
Lesson 6 (58:20)
In lesson six, we complete the painting by adding glazes.
