lol I wish I could REALLY paint this fast! :)
I am working on the portrait for the Facing Homelessness charity fundraiser in Seattle and decided to share the process! Here I show you how I paint the adorable little puppy. :)
I am using Gamblin Artist Oil Colors and Rosemary & Co Brushes.
Something that I am being very conscious about throughout the process is my edges. Nothing says cuddly fur better than soft brushstroke edges. :)
What a sweet little face! :D
What's the big idea???
I am having a blast getting the hang of the recording & editing process and am excited to share more painting videos like this with Patreon.
I love having you join me in the studio! :)
Thank you to my awesome Patreon Patrons who make videos like this possible!
