Introducing the latest from Peggy Osborne: a long haired cat tutorial.
Beautiful, full-color illustrations provide step-by-step progress images of the portrait. Easy-to-read and follow descriptions tell you what Peggy did at each step.
But there’s more.
What I like best about this tutorial isn’t Peggy’s conversational style of teaching. Yes, she makes you feel like she’s sitting beside you while you work, and that’s great. What I like best about this tutorial is the personality and character of her subject.
As she says in her introduction, cats are natural subjects because they’re so unique and individual. No two are alike.
Maine Coon cat lovers already know that these cats are even more unique. From their tufted ears and luxurious manes to their attitude. They’re perfect portrait subjects!
That’s why I think this is Peggy’s best tutorial yet.
