Siamese Cat

My students have been asking me to paint my Siamese cat, so I decided to make the painting into a tutorial. Give the technique a try.


Dewdrops are a great way to add life to your painting, yet many painters don’t attempt them because of the mistaken belief that they are difficult. They are surprisingly easy to do if you follow some simple rules.


Eyes are one of the most problematic areas for many artists. A well done eye can make your subject look lifelike and alluring. On the other hand, if you make a mistake on the eyes, viewers will know there is something wrong even if they can’t pinpoint the problem. Still, eyes don’t have to be difficult and since you can’t avoid them, it’s best to tackle them head on.
