In addition to applying several layers to achieve the look of fur, you need to use the correct colors. There are hundreds of color varieties depending on the amount of pigment you add. It is best to start with basic white, black, brown, red and yellow fur colors and build upon them. You will need an accurate sketch or drawing of the subject you are going to be painting. If you can fee hand the drawing, great! If you are not so talented, that is OK too. Many artists use a grid to come up with an initial drawing. Either way, you absolutely need to start with a good drawing.
Coloring books are a thing of the past. Kids today aren't as thrilled by a basic coloring book as children a generation ago. That is because these children have been spoiled by all the fantastic new methods of coloring using the computer or with fancy markers and pens. While you might get away with a coloring book and crayons for a long car trip, don't expect your school age children to sit quietly at the table coloring pictures the old fashioned way − there is a something better around, and they know it.
A good parenting must consider the understanding about the preschool period of child. According to studies, preschool period of child's life cycle is vital to convey awareness. In every country, children often start school when they are just three years old and spend two years in the preschool or kindergarten section of the school before they start Year 1 − first grade − at the age of five or six. When it comes to learning, parents can help with number awareness − being able to recite from one to 10 is not the same as understanding the value and place of numbers. Talk to your child about quantities, for example, five is bigger than two. Concentrate on counting; playing dominoes and simple board games, such as Snakes and Ladders, will teach children how to count while making it fun.
When you are satisfied that you have an accurate drawing go ahead and paint in the base color of the animal. The base color is usually light and gets darker as you build the layers. Don't worry about making it look like fur or hair at this point. Next, use a dark color such as black or burnt umber to fill in the outline of the eyes, deep shadows, or other very dark areas. You will need to paint in the eyes, nose, mouth, paws, etc. If your drawing is detailed enough you should be able to do this by using a very small detail brush. Just outline everything and then fill it in with appropriate colors.
