Format
Video Length: 1 Hour 49 Minutes



Capture your pets personality with watermedia artist Pat Weaver.

Pat's direct painting approach and limited palette help you strip away distractions and work fast on fur, whiskers, feathers, and other eye-catching textures. In this workshop you'll complete five watercolor and acrylic paintings on a variety of surfaces, so you're sure to find the right combination for all your favorite animals. Pat emphasizes shape relationships as she draws from photographs. Whether she uses dot-to-line sketching or a direct approach, you'll have clear views of her reference material throughout the workshop. She makes the most of her limited palette by carefully managing moisture. You'll learn to control value by balancing fresh pigment and water, and Pats color-mixing shortcuts help you create anything from bright red to black in seconds. Pat simplifies animal painting with judicious brushwork. You'll create convincing fur without painting individual strands, and you'll layer color to allow glowing hints of your underpainting to peek through. This workshop will teach you to see your pets in a new light!

BONUS CLIP: Rub-Out Drawing

In this clip from her video workshop, Animal Portraits in Watermedia, Pat Weaver uses a rub-out technique to start a painting of a golden retriever puppy. Pat coats a board with an even layer of paint then wipes away shapes to form the highlights on the dog's face and ears. She then sketches outlines for the rest of the shapes with watercolor pencils.

Amazing talent!

Pat is an excellent teacher and does an fantastic job of explaining and illustrating why she is in such demand. I loved the video and the customer service was superb as I received a defective disc initially. It was quickly replaced with little trouble on my part. I will definitely be ordering again!

Excellent DVD

Pat Weaver's "Animal Portraits in Watermedia" is a fast-moving, informative, clear and concise DVD. Her 5 watercolor and acrylic demonstrations are outstanding and her narrative is excellent. I have not enjoyed an instructional Art DVD more.
She has an expertise with watermedia that is quickly apparent. And her narrative coincides perfectly with her paintings which are well filmed.
Her supply list is limited. She demonstrates with 5 colors per painting to get a full array of colors on her subjects. She explains how to easily make colored neutrals and darks by using complementary colors and achieves the look of fur without getting nitpicky.
Her dot-to-line sketching method and the rub-out technique in conjunction with the use of colored pencils are priceless.
Invest in this DVD...it will be money well spent!
