    Most of them don't have the cow, that one is special.

    Cole, question I have is picture three where you spray a light coat of burnt umber spray on the tine. Is the burnt umber mixed down to make it look that light? The picture seems a lot lighter brown than what burnt umber shows to be in the catalog. Thanks Dhart

    No I didn't mix it, I just used a very very light coat.

  16. This is the best tutorial I've seen on here, Thank You
  17. I apologise if you answered this already.. but do you use acrylic paints, or oils? I am thinking that oils would look more natural (I paint landscapes in both and just cannot get a natural-looking landscape with acrylics.) But your tines look 100% natural and maybe you did get the acrylic to work. I am thinking that if one were to use oil paints, they could mix in a fast-drying medium like Gamblin's Japan Drier; it greatly speeds up paint dry-time from weeks-long to a few days.

  19. I see now :) Maybe if you are using thin layers, it does not take too long to dry. My oil paintings on canvas take weeks!
