I’m thrilled to announce a brand new tutorial by pet portrait artist, Peggy Osborne: Regal Rottweiler tutorial.
Peggy has been providing guest posts each month for several months. If you’ve enjoyed those monthly features, you’ll love this new tutorial.
Regal Rottweiler Tutorial from Peggy Osborne
The tutorial includes all the great information you’ve grown familiar with through her monthly posts, and more. Beautiful, full-color illustrations, a full-size line drawing you can print for a fast start, and a complete supply list with color swatches for color matching.
Rottweilers are primarily black, but different colors appear in that black depending on lighting, surroundings and many other things. Peggy shows you how to infuse black fur with those colors to create vibrant black fur.
She uses Strathmore toned grey mixed media paper and Prismacolor pencils, but you can successfully complete the portrait with supplies you have. No need to buy more (unless you want to!)
You’ll learn how to layer and blend color without using solvents to draw saturated color and beautiful values.
Preserve and add highlights, as well as draw whiskers, eyes, and a chain.
In addition to detailed descriptions and illustrations, Peggy shares basic tips for choosing colors, matching pencil strokes to different types of fur, and adding details.
Intermediate and higher.
But don’t let the skill level sway you. This tutorial contains information for students at any level. If you’ve found Peggy’s tutorial posts helpful, then you can successfully complete this tutorial.
The tutorial is designed for students who have a basic understanding of colored pencil methods, but is also ideal for anyone who enjoys stretching their skills.
It’s also suitable for ages 12 and up.
This tutorial is a great start for any artist who wants to become a pet portrait artist, or who enjoys drawing dogs.
