Here is my first animal painting done in acrylic, it's made on 8x10 inch stretched canvas. It was tougher to do than the landscapes I've been painting up to now. I wasn't sure whether I should first paint the background in completely and then paint the penguins over it or if I should paint the background around them. I decided to outline the penguins in pencil on the canvas and then I went ahead and painted the background overlapping the pencil outline. It worked okay, I think I need more practice though, but overall I'm happy with the painting.
