WOW! This is fantastic. I love how you textured the tree with so much detail and the cat is perfection.

Welcome back to the forum. Sure hope you can stick around. I can tell I could learn a lot from you, you are way beyond good.

What a treasure house of information your site is. I'm bookmarking it and I have subscribed to your youtube station so I will catch all the videos you make. I'm so thrilled. I know I will learn a lot from you.

I just watched the "Wildlife Art Painting a Tiger Tonal Underpainting - Jason Morgan " and how you do it is a totally new technique to me. I mean covering the whole canvas with the acrylic underpaint and then wiping off the lighter areas. I'm definitely going to try this.

The only question I have is something you said in the video. You said that acrylic generally dries lighter. Did I hear that right? I thought acrylic generally dries darker not lighter. Anyway, I definitely am an instant fan of yours. How wonderful that you are sharing your knowledge.

I encourage all painters to give it a 'look see'.

Hi Jason, I thought your name looked familiar, I came across your art several years ago while browsing the internet. Your leopard looks fantastic.
