When painting animals with acrylic paint you will create a more realistic appearance if you use several thinned layers of paint. You thicken the paint as you want more detail. Think of your painting as a step by step process that is a three−dimensional object. It is important to realize that from the start. The first few layers of your painting will have an "unfinished" look. Don't give up during this unfinished stage. For a realistic appearance you are going to need several layers.
As parents, you have the duty to support the child to understand the importance of color and help the kid to make the meaningful image with colors to create the story, which the kid likes, understands and finds delightful. In this manner the kid is drawn to the world of color and understands varieties and also right colors to insert at the right places to make out the meaning of the story.
As you add layer upon layer to create the animal fur keep in mind the roundness of the shapes and the areas of light and dark. Start with a thin, watery version of the color and darken it as you work. Be careful not to end up darkening everything. Let some of each layer show through. The final stages of the painting will show detail. Use a very small detail brush and paint in some hair or hair strands. A lot of times, just a few details of hair is all that is needed to send the viewer the message of fur. Don't forget to add whiskers, final highlights and shadows. Have fun and enjoy learning to paint animals.
