A slideshow depicting various media in animal portraits, and other assorted subjects. Different techniques are shown to include: pencil, color pencil, acrylic paint, woodburning, watercolor and so on. I am self taught but give credit to various artists: Betty Edwards, Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain, Lee Hammond; Drawing realistic Portraits, Walter Foster books, and many others. The key to doing art is to just do it! Start, and practice, practice, practice.
