James Gurney takes on the ultimate artistic challenge: painting animals from life. Using gouache in a small sketchbook, he shows you all the steps, from the first lines to the color block-in, to the refinement of detail—all the while adjusting to subjects that won’t hold still.
In the first segment he paints a dog resting by a window. In the second, he captures young farmhands as they wash Belgian draft horses. You get a “driver’s seat” perspective, with split-screens and close-ups, along with an informative voice-over commentary.
“James’ techniques are not only insightful but his knowledge of the animals’ structure and his love of his subjects shine through his whole painting process. A thoroughly enjoyable presentation.”
—Gary Geraths, Professor of Art, Otis College of Art and Design
