A Step by Step Process from Animal Artist Toni Hargreaves
We are delighted to share with you the work of animal artist Toni Hargreaves. Here she provides us with a visual step by step account of how she produced her latest work – a special commission then sent out to the buyers in California. Toni favours painting in oils on our lovely Gallery Professional deep-edged canvases. She says…”My animals are not cuddly toys so I don’t seek to portray the cute factor in my work. I like the individualistic nature of them and whether that comes across as docile or plain bad tempered for example, then that’s what I paint.”
Underpainting begins with a pencil drawing on the canvas. The under-painting is always done in sepia acrylic.
The process is then completed in oil.
A closer view of the brush work. The finished piece. Lovely finishing touch.
