LEOPARD Stage 6 by JoeJusko LEOPARD Stage 6 by JoeJusko
I added the furry texture by painting in between the spots and slightly overlapping the strokes and the spots. Were the cat larger I would have brushed the spots and spaces back and forth more thoroughly but it didn't really need it here. Highlights were Yellow Ochre and white for the golden areas and Parchment and Titanium White for the underbelly area. Shadows were deepened with Hookers Green Deep.

the technique may be called something else , im not sure. my friend Nick Rose who apprentices under Daniel Horne refers to the method as that.

basically you try not to make a hard outline of the subject and the deeper things are in the background the more "air" they have around them. this is to make the subject fit into the illo more if iam correctly understanding it.

iam always trying new things out and learning things as i go.

I'm way too anal, Liam1 I wish I could be more spontaneous, but I spend too much time in prep.

I think Fresco is being silly for once. LOL
This is really awesome to look at the progress and it helps me out quite a bit on learning. It's sad that I've learned more from you with these progression images than I did from my art professor in college... he was worthless tho, but anyways...

I gotta ask ya... are there any times during a painting such as this... where you're almost done or somewhere in the progression stage and feel you totally messed up and don't know how to salvage it?

And sorry Fresco... I gotta give Joe the clap too. :laughing:

It's been years (and years) since I screwed up enough to not know how to fix it. Just comes with experience and the knowledge that nothing is irreparable.

That's good to know. It's nice to hear from someone you look up to that at one time they did have the minor problem of a SNAFU, but now... don't have that problem. There's hope for me yet!... I think. lol

And this all takes what? 15 minutes, start to finish?

Blank canvas, reach for a mighty brush... a few happy trees here and there, some spots, a brute and babe, minutes later... Pow!!
