As with all my other painting I have taken snapshots of it as I go along so that I can see the different stages and how the picture builds up.
So here is the first stage of the line drawing and the koala bear given a base coat of plain grey paint on his fur.
A bit of his fur. The coat is quite thick and dense so needs to be built up in stages. Started a bit of the background colour too where his fur will cover over.
Leaves and tree filled in and the edges of his fur blended against the background. Nearly done now.
Just a little bit more tweaking of his fur, nostrils added, eyes brightened and
Heres looking at You!
