This is just what I was looking for! Pat simplifies the painting of animal portraits from her drawing technique to the finished painting. She uses a basic pallet and you can see her brush as she mixes her colors on the pallet and when she takes paint to the paper, so it is like you are right there with her. Thank you Pat , thank you, Creative Catalyst!- Jenifer 8/27/2012 -
BONUS CLIP: Rub-Out Drawing
In this clip from her DVD workshop, Animal Portraits in Watermedia, Pat Weaver uses a rub-out technique to start a painting of a golden retriever puppy. Pat coats a board with an even layer of paint then wipes away shapes to form the highlights on the dog's face and ears. She then sketches outlines for the rest of the shapes with watercolor pencils.
Capture your pet's personality with watermedia artist Pat Weaver. Pat's direct painting approach and limited palette help you strip away distractions and work fast on fur, whiskers, feathers, and other eye-catching textures. In this workshop you'll complete five watercolor and acrylic paintings on a variety of surfaces, so you're sure to find the right combination for all your favorite animals.
Pat emphasizes shape relationships as she draws from photographs. Whether she uses dot-to-line sketching or a direct approach, you'll have clear views of her reference material throughout the workshop.
She makes the most of her limited palette by carefully managing moisture. You'll learn to control value by balancing fresh pigment and water, and Pat's color-mixing shortcuts help you create anything from bright red to black in seconds.
Pat simplifies animal painting with judicious brushwork. You'll create convincing fur without painting individual strands, and you'll layer color to allow glowing hints of your underpainting to peek through. Learn to see your pets in a new light in Animal Portraits in Watermedia with Pat Weaver.
