What do you get when you combine the ever-popular subject of animals, the user-friendly medium of acrylic, and the friendly, encouraging teaching style of Lee Hammond? A simple and fun way to start painting your favorite animals in a charming, realistic style!
No previous experience? No problem! Lee's easy-going approach begins with nothing more than an assembly of spheres and a basic foundation of color. 24 step-by-step demonstrations show you how to refine these basic elements into living, breathing animal portraits, including: cats, dogs, horses, goats, cows, squirrels, rabbits, woodchucks, tigers, elephants, lions, turtles, snakes, iguanas, robins, swans, owls, and cockatoos.
This book is full of expert tips for painting animal eyes, mouths, noses and ears. Learn to make fur and feathers look remarkably real, and avoid common mistakes like "humanizing" eyes. You'll find an easy trick for making accurate drawings and color "recipes" for some of the most common fur tones. Before you know it, you'll be able to paint not just the animals that roam and soar through this book, but any animal that captures your heart!
