See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil. These are three 24"x12" canvases that I painted this year and gave to
a dear friend. The purpose was two fold. First, to learn how to use
acrylic paint in preparation for painting a puppy mural for our friends
new training & boarding facility. Acrylics and I aren't the best
of friends. I like working in markers, color pencil, and watercolor. I
really need to take some lessons from a live teacher lol. I did view a
couple on-line tutorials. The second purpose was to figure out how to
paint a black animal. I wanted to do a black Lab pup and was having no
end of trouble.
I don't remember how many times I
painted and repainted Janus (the black horse) because of his color and
Baby (brown horse) because I couldn't get the angle of the hooves
covering the ears the way I liked. In retrospect, it was fun. When I was
doing it - it was frustrating torture :). I need to find a good teacher
if I want to keep in this medium.
