Portraits of animals, and especially dogs, are about much more than just technique. In this remarkably comprehensive book, Dave will show you how to capture character alongside likeness, as well as providing all the technical information you’ll need to do this.

Using a wide variety of examples, Dave starts by showing you how to prepare for your work, what materials you will need and the use of backgrounds and settings. He then moves on to extended studies of features such as hair, eyes, whiskers and noses - all details that you need to get right if the result is to look anything like a dog and, especially, the subject in question.

There’s plenty of instruction, exercises, hints, tips and demonstrations and Dave is superb at both showing and explaining so that you’ll never feel lost or unconfident. Particularly useful are the 'True Tales' that appear throughout, relating what you’re doing to real animals whose character shines in both the stories and the illustrations.

We’re more than halfway through the book before the full projects start, but these will enable you to put all you’ve learnt so far into practice, judging your own results against those of Dave himself.

This is an excellent guide that will show you how to capture not just a likeness, but the character of your subject as well.

    Thank you for your enquiry.

    The Dave White book Painting Dog Portraits in Acrylics Book

    Many of the techniques should be transferable to work with oil paints, adapting for the characteristics of the medium and the slower drying time of the oil paints.
