Whitetail Noses: Painting Techniques

Whitetail Noses: Painting Techniques

by Carolin Brak-Dolny

Many people have asked me about my deer noses so I thought I would share. This is how I do whitetail noses on commercial deer. As you know, there are many color variations of visible bare areas on whitetails and this is very true for the nose. The nose pad can exhibit both smooth textures and other very prominent textures. Nose color will vary, along with the color tones of the lower nose pad to the upper portion of the nose pad. Learn from reference, especially the fresh examples received in your workshop. Study good quality nose photo reference for the coloring and color tone variations.

Painting a Largemouth Bass

Painting a Largemouth Bass

by Ron Kelly

Illustrations by Larry Blomquist

This is a paint schedule for a largemouth bass. It can be used for a real fish or replica. The only difference is how you prepare each fish for the paint. The paint is basically applied the same way. I have a system that has worked for me for over 40 years, but I encourage everyone to experiment and try to get better each time as I do. I am open to new methods and try to learn something new each time I paint a fish.

My techniques have a basic side, but my paints and application have changed slightly over time. I started off painting oil paints with a brush (showing my age). Actually, some were quite good back then and surpassed guys that were getting into airbrushing at the time. I gravitated to airbrushing during high school and was fortunate to learn how to use one from Bud Hull in Georgia. He is a legend and still one of the best in my opinion.
