Painting animals? Here's a pig that you can try!
by Chris Hansen
Hello fellow artists - Would you like to try your hands at painting animals? If so, here's a pig that you can try.
As I mentioned before, please dip your brushes in water before painting. The best way to start a painting is to have a "reference" picture. Start with a pencil sketch, and start painting your picture with background colors. After you have painted your background, start adding color to the faces, etc. End with the facial features.
Remember, you can't make a mistake - it's called "abstract" for a very good reason. It's not a photograph! It's a painting, so have fun with it. ~. Chris
