6th Lesson - Camels

I think the most important thing to remember when painting the camel's blankets is to make sure any stripes, tassels or lines are not straight.  They follow the curvature of the saddle underneath with kinks and folds, giving an impression of depth.  Use plenty of darks for shadow with contrasting highlights to make a sharp, clean edges.  I stippled on the paint with a small brush to give the texture of wool.   You can really use any colours you want here - I used Cadmium Red Deep for that lovely rich red.
