Jack Russell Fur Detail

Jack Russell Fur Detail by Hope Lane

Roscoe’s coat is made up of a mixture of brown and white tones, but the brown fur is sprinkled with loads of fine white hairs. There are no shortcuts for a painter–out comes the little brush while I layer dozens of tiny strokes on top of each other. Each layer is just a little bit lighter in color than the one before it. Roscoe’s eyes are very distinctive and I have worked to get the reflection of the light correct.
