Share my adventures and mis-adventures as I create original art in various media. I work in both 2D (oil, acrylic, pastel, pencil, colored pencil, watercolor, and mixed media) as well as 3D (polymer clay, paper clay, ceramics, and felting). My favorite subject is animals. You will find comments on my experiences with several art products and methods.

Fluffing up the Groundhogs
Now I've done more work on the groundhogs. I added the next layer of texture to the fur. First, I glazed over the animals to create a sense of form by deepening the colors in the shadows. I used mixtures of Payne's Grey/Van Dyck Brown and Ultramarine Blue/Burnt Umber. The mixture is the cooler on and the second is the warmer one. Then I added another layer of the tiny texture strokes. I used the same method - glaze then detail - to model the faces.
