Dog portrait painting in progress

Dogportrait painting in progress by Marjolein Kruijt

Animation dog petportrait painting step by step by Marjolein Kruijt

May 2, 2016 ~ This slideshow shows various steps of a dog portrait painting (in commission) I made. See how it develops from pencil drawing to finished painting. Of course there are many many more steps I’ve made, especially in the design and details. Those steps can be seen in my 1st book (3rd print edition) on animal painting, called “Dieren tekenen en schilderen”, showing a lot of close-ups on painting fur and painting the eyes. Although the book is not in english language at this date, the images show it all.  Also a list of materials is added. This book is almost sold out, also by the publisher…so don’t wait too long to order it here!
