PAINTING ANIMALS IN OILS #2
BY BEN WADDAMS
Here are the images you'll learn to paint in this class:
Ben is a firm believer in the notion that 'everyone can paint'. Or at least 'everyone can be taught to paint'. A decent artist should simply be able to help and guide an amateur or novice through their steps, which will result in a painting of sorts.
However, for a person to evolve from a decent artist into a very good one, they must have a passion for their subject. This is particularly true of wildlife art. I feel I must know my subject intimately. I try my very best to study the species in the wild. I research its habitat, speak to experts, read books, study maps, try to understand its natural history, visit its environment, sketch it and photograph it. If I fail, I speak to and study the work of wildlife cameramen and professional photographers.
All this happens before I even think of picking up a paintbrush. Far too many artists jump straight to the paintbrush stage without bothering to research their subject fully enough, whether it be portraiture, landscape, architecture, sculpture or wildlife.

COMMENTS & REVIEWS
I've not seen this way of working in oils before. It was fascinating! It was also well explained. Would the first layer have to dry before going onto the next? Perhaps this is answered in the next video?
Thank you Ben, this is a wonderful tutorial, easy to follow, and glad you went into a bit of detail about the materials..regards Robyn
