Learn to paint animals with vivid color and imagination in Acrylic Animals (Colorways).

Acrylic Animals (Colorways) teaches artists of all skill levels how to paint vibrant, colorful renditions of animals from around the globe. Grab your paints, canvas, and imagination because its time to paint pointillistic pandas, tetradic llamas, vibrant flamingos, and complementary cows and that is just the beginning! Each step-by-step project in Acrylic Animals (Colorways) shows you not only how to capture an animal's likeness, but also how to use color to create magical, other-worldly, and whimsical paintings. Youll also learn how to use acrylic paint to add texture and fanciful flourishes, like florals and collage, to your glorious animal subjects. Colorways is a brand-new series from Walter Foster teaching artists of all skill levels how to create innovative, inspired artwork that is full of color and imagination. Focusing on creating expressive pieces over realistic scenes, Colorways shows artists how to break the "rules" of color and let their imaginations and artwork soar to new heights. In the Colorways series, flamingos are green, giraffes boast multicolored spots, and raccoons feature blue undertones.
