5. Animals and people
Here are some more challenges for us to paint. Here we are looking at ways of capturing soft textures such as fur and material.
Hair and fur
Hair and fur can be painted with just a couple of layers of paint – a first wash of color, possible another shadow layer if necessary, and a few details. Here I’ll show you two ways of painting short fur and long hair.
Cloth may seem daunting to paint, but in fact it is quite easy. Just follow the examples I¡ll show you here and see how you can paint fabric with just a couple of washes and a little detail. I'll also show you a few ways to create different looking fabrics.
6. Random textures
Here are three textures that we can create which are random and largely uncontrolled. They just do their own thing, but they create some wonderful effects that can be used in paintings. Experiment with them as I have done here.
