Your fur coat looks so thick and real. Great work.

Eric, once again amazing........Beautiful work. Can't wait for the on line courses. Penny

P.S. Online courses? Yes I'm hoping to do something like that pretty soon. I get a lot of emails requesting it.

Hi Liz, Thanks for your commet :) What I do with oils is try to get it as near as I can with the first layer of oil paint, working wet in wet with paint straight from the tube or only slightly let down with linseed oil. That way it only needs a few overlayers and glazes to get it looking right. Too many glazes and you lose the power of the oil pigments. This one took me a month to complete, working around 4 hours a day 5 or six days a week.

Hi Eric.. again..another beauty!! How long does it take, on average, for you to do a work this size? And do you work in layering the paints with glazes...you get such amazing volume and depth. (If you don't mind me asking...) Any on-line teaching course in the works?? XO Enjoying all your works.. Liz

Thank you.. I'll keep that in mind for when I need it.. but, your work is just so amazing..

Thank you Marlene and Barbara :) The breath is done by wetting the area of the canvas with linseed oil, and then blending a small amount of paint into it with a big soft brush.

Just look at that SNOW! The pale, cold sunlight, the texture...snow does have texture. The tiger is perfection, but then what else could it be? Your work is the definition of incredible.

Now.. how did you do his breath? You're amazing..
