James Gurney: Oil Painting with Textural Effects Tutorial
Thick oil paint looks great, but it takes forever to dry—so what to do?
James Gurney shows two ways to pre-texture the surface with a painterly impasto layer that he then accentuates by with a glaze after it dries.
He demonstrates these techniques with black and white oil paint and then applies them to three illustrations of T.rex that he produced for Ranger Rick Magazine.
James has developed these methods from almost 40 years of professional work for National Geographic, Scientific American, and the US Postal Service.
Learning these secrets helps you achieve a rich and realistic paint surface, regardless of the subject matter you prefer to paint.
This is an extended sample from a tutorial video called “Unconventional Oil Techniques.”
