The Sunday Art Show - Sheep Painting Tutorial - Mixed media markers and paint

The Sunday Art Show - Sheep Painting Tutorial - Mixed media markers and paint



This sheep painting tutorial starts with a narrow nib acrylic paint marker and then continues to show how to use the giant nib acrylic paint marker pens to create a series of different effects and marks. I did a sheep painting using paint markers a few weeks ago but this one is different as after the marker pen work, I switch to applying normal acrylic paint with a brush to enhance the sheep picture. Hope to see you next Sunday for the next episode of the Sunday Art Show

The Sunday Art Show - En Plein Air Sheep Sketch - Enjoying the morning sun





This week I am, 'Enjoying the morning sun' - I go looking for deer in the grounds of Powderham Castle in Devon but find sheep first. Inspired by the scene, I use A4 mixed media paper, a black sharpie pen and inktense pencils to create an enplein air drawing of a flock of sheep sheltering under a copse of trees. Then I continue to search for deer :-). See the finished painting here: https://mike-jory.pixels.com/featured...

The Sunday Art Show - Sail Boats on the River Exe at Exmouth Painting Tutorial



This week, I am inspired by giant jelly fish at Exmouth Marina to paint a picture of 3 sail boats with blue sails gliding across the silvery water of the River Exe in Devon. You can see, and zoom in on, the finished painting here: https://mike-jory.pixels.com/featured/sailing-boats-with-blue-sails-on-the-river-exe-at-exmouth-mike-jory.html This is a mixed media painting called "Weekend on the water". I start with a few thumbnail sketches using biro then move onto mixed media paper and put down some loose lines with a fluorescent marker pen and some acrylic paint markers. Most of the painting is then blocked in with washes of watercolour before the image is brought to conclusion using interactive acrylics.
