A Word From the Author:

"This book is a collection of colorful projects designed to give you the opportunity to learn how to paint various animals with acrylics. Use the grid method to help with the preliminary sketches. This technique is an easy way to obtain accuracy in your drawings.

When I create my books, I often use the illustrations I am working on as demonstrations in my art classes. My students watch me work and ask questions, which I use to guide me as I write.

Most of the projects have three or four steps to follow. Alothough many of the projects may look complex, painting with acrylic is all about layers. The paint dries quickly, so it’s easy to add details or cover up previous applications. Acrylic is a very forgiving medium." — Lee Hammond

Paint Properties
Each form of paint—jar, tube or squeeze bottle—has different characteristics. Once you’ve selected the paint you prefer, you will find that individual colors have their own properties as well.

Opacity: Some colors cover surfaces better than others, appearing more opaque, while some will be more transparent. Some colors completely cover the canvas, while others seem streaky. With time and practice, you’ll get to know your paints. Play and experiment first by creating some color swatches like the ones on this page. This will give you a better understanding of how each color on your palette behaves.

Permanence: Certain colors are more prone to fading over time than others. Most brands have a permanency to let you know what to expect. A color with an "excellent" rating is a durable color that will hold its original color for a long time. A color rated as "good" or "moderate" with experience some fading, but not a huge difference over time. A color rated as "fugitive" will fade significantly. You can see this most often with yellows and certain reds. Try to avoid fugitive colors. Regardless of a color’s permanence rating, never hang a painting in direct sunlight. Ultraviolet rays in sunlight are the primary cause of fading.

Toxicity: Good-quality paint brands will include some toxic colors. Some of the natural pigments that produce vivid colors are toxic, such as the cadmium pigments and some blues. Never swallow or inhale these colors. Certain colors should never be applied by spraying; check the label. If you’re working with children, always find a brand that substitutes synthetic pigments for the toxic ones.
