I'm not a good drawer, and am brand new to acrylics. Angela makes everything so easy! From the tracing suggestions to the color mixing and brush techniques, I drew the Zebra first, and I'm so pleased with it, I wish you could see it!
Save yourself some time by purchasing the paints and brushes you'll need BEFORE you get the book so you don't have to wait!
Acrylic paints=ultramarine blue, ultramarine violet, cobalt turquoise light, cadmium yellow medium, pyrrole orange, quinacridone violet, titanium white, violet iron oxide, mars black, red iron oxide, cadmium orange, yellow ochre, burntsienna, cerulean blue, burnt umber, alizarin crimson, naples yellow, permanent sap green, raw umber, and perylene green. (You could just paint with red, yellow and blue, if you know how to mix.)
Brushes = Large Pointed mop, or any mop, actually, size 2 filbert, size 0 rigger (this is brush with a long section of hair, used to create wispy lines) and 3 sizes of combers-6mm(1/4"), 9mm(3/8"), and 12mm(1/2").
ALSO, Angela uses water soluble pencils ink black and bark color. These are a real necessity, as you need to lay down your zebras stripes, and then be able to paint over it without washing the stripes off!
Go forth and enjoy painting!
