Dog portraits

What sets Dave White apart from other animal portrait artists is his ability to really capture the character of his subjects in acrylics. In his new book, Painting Dog Portraits in Acrylics, he shares with us some of the technique he uses to do just that. This is not a book for beginners, and it assumes some experience with painting pet portraits, but Dave provides detailed information on composition, colour, choosing reference materials and essential painting techniques, including how to paint the glint in an eye or the shine on a nose. Three step-by-step projects include a short-haired dog, a long-haired dog and a group portrait.

About Leisure Painter

Brighten up your winter painting with the February issue of Leisure Painter. We begin the issue with a look at 'more than just paintings' where Claudia Myatt demonstrates how to use a combination of planning and playfulness to create lively and modern designs in watercolour. You are also invited to follow our 31-day challenge, where Steve Strode offers advice and inspiration for an entire month of creative activities. The rest of the issue is packed with demonstrations, practical advice and tutorials on how to draw and paint in watercolour, acrylic, gouache, line and wash, pastel, coloured pencil, scratchboard and more.
