From a bare beginning on the board….
Big tip learnt was to use chalk over the background to draw out the image, this was also a usefull method of indicating direction of fur.
All in all not a bad first attempt at painting fur – hopefully with more practice this can be developed.
Best brushes (personal choice): Liner brush, small philbert & small rake brush

Paint: Liquitex Basics
Leap of faith: Glazing layers of colour as a watery wash to tone the fur – thought this might have taken off the previous layer of detail but it didn’t. I think a combination of the previous layer being dried first and good quality paint.
