Hi Jonathan I loved this demonstration, in fact I watched both parts twice. I learned so much from you. After Christmas I will get the acrylics out again (currently using pastels) and first picture will be the Gorilla. Many thanks


Thank you so much Jonathan for a fantastic tutorial. Your teaching style makes it easy to follow and inspires me to give it a go. I love all wild animals and I hope you will do more acrylic videos of these wonderful creatures. Thanks again. Doreen

I really enjoyed this lesson. I am excited to pick up some of the tecniques you showed in your painting such as the stipling to show short hair and the use of glazes. I am new to acrylics and I pick up something new eah time I see these tutorials. Thanks!

I really think this tutorial is excellent. I have only just started to try acrylics and I found Jonathans method of painting fur etc., interesting and informative. I hope more are in the pipeline. Thanks!


Hi Jonathan, Just wanted to say thanks for the tiger video, loved all the techniques I learnt and for once I am actually pleased with my end result. Thanks again.
