Harvest mouse

Part 2 Complete your detailed portrait of a harvest mouse, with Paul Hopkinson

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Use the layering technique to paint detail

How to create form and depth in your subject

I hope you enjoyed following last month’s demonstration (LP, October) when we covered the painting of the background and the mouse’s eye. This month we complete the portrait with the addition of the fur detail and the stalk the mouse is placed on. From here on you will be using in most part your No. 00 brush. I hope you enjoy painting this beautiful harvest mouse (right).

About Leisure Painter

Time to take out your brushes and colours as you peruse the November issue of Leisure Painter. This month, build your confidence and skill set with new ideas from acrylic painters, Brendan Smith and Helen Elliott. For the watercolourists, there are demonstrations and practical advice for painting flowers, autumn landscapes, trees, animals, buildings and street scenes. Oil painter, Martin Kinnear covers 'how to paint a winner' with advice on how to see and think like a professional artist, while Elena Parashko demonstrates the painting of tulips in the same medium. Tony Paul continues his look at successful composition ideas, Tim Fisher (who completes his seven-part line & colour series this month) also reports on new sketching sets by Caran d'Ache, and there's even an article on how to paint a halloween-inspired cartoon. Enjoy another month of painting with the UK's best-selling learn to paint magazine.
