Streamline Premium Art Videos has just released a new instructional video from Johanne Mangi titled The Fine Art of Painting Dog Portraits. Please consider making your readers aware. (A link to the video for your review and a link to high-resolution photographs is below.)
This video training is conducted by renowned animal painter Johanne Mangi, who has been asked to exhibit at the National Arts Club and Portraits, Inc. in New York City, as well as other high-profile venues. With her guidance, students will learn how to emphasize unique personality and expressions in their animal portraits as they follow along with her step-by-step painting demonstration. The lesson begins with a study of the subject, in life and in photos, to understand structure, anatomy, and details needed to learn how to make a strong composition.
Mangi says, “We want that dog to look like he’s going to pop off the page, so you can feel the blood pumping through this dog!”
Students follow along to complete a painting of a dog, starting with a simple block-in, then laying on paint directly and quickly. Johanne paints on a smooth surface with an oil ground, which allows for quick application and removal of paint — great for juicy strokes, “adding” light areas, adjusting values, and fixing mistakes. Students will enjoy bringing their pet portraits to life with the painting lessons in this video!
The Fine Art of Painting Dog Portraits is now available on DVD and streaming video through Streamline Premium Art Video.
There’s no denying that painters who have mastered this art form are held in high esteem. Queen Victoria once called Edwin Landseer — the renowned animal painter whose work includes the famous Highland Dogs and Dignity and Impudence paintings — “the cleverest artist there is.”
