Here's a glimpse into a lesson on painting elephants in acrylic from The Art of Painting in Acrylic!
"The more you practice, the less thinking you will have to do, which allows you to focus on the emotion of the painting. To me, feeling and emotion are the two most important aspects of the painting process. I express myself through painting in a way I can't with words. My portraits capture emotion and feeling in the subjects and speak for them just as clearly as words. With a little practice, you too can master this art!" ~Susan Miller Bradbury
