Learn How to Paint NUT CRACKING SQUIRREL with Acrylic – Paint & Sip at Home – Step by Step Tutorial

VIDEO DESCRIPTION This painting tutorial will take you through easy to follow, step-by-step instructions on how to paint this adorable woodland animal portrait image of “NUT CRACKING SQUIRREL” with acrylic paint. You’ll learn simple painting techniques that will help you to develop a realistic shape and form on this fluffy small outdoor critter who is trying his hand at opening a large walnut with his handy red axe. As he plants himself firmly on the rustic old stump, he muscles up the strength to chop into the top of the strong tree nut in hopes of opening the shell to discover a big flavorful lunch inside. This painting is filled with the inspiration of a child’s imagination with a little whimsical touch. You could even have your squirrel wearing a sweater or a flannel shirt to put him right into the forest atmosphere looking like a lumber jack… just let your imagination steer the evolution of this painting. With the dramatic texture of the fur and the out of focus evergreen glow behind him, the image takes on a country sheik look. You’ll learn how to build the fur using layering and stippling techniques creating dimension throughout the body. The painting will come to life with the shimmering twinkle in the eyes and the 3d illusion from the axe and the stumps. Bringing this cute little squirrel to life will feel magical, but you’ll also learn some valuable lessons along the way to create realistic looking elements that will appear to pop out of the canvas with a real photo quality. With perfectly proportioned features in the rodents body and realistic movement in the arms and tail, the round sitting squirrel will look like he’s ready to start stashing away his cache of protein packed snacks. The soft color in the fur, with the texture and dimension, lets you imagine how cuddly this little guy (or girl) is in real life. With the construction of the composition you’ll learn to paint this realistic looking charming friend who is exercising his right to crack nuts with force. Creativity is always encouraged, just have fun with it! This painting is sure to impress the viewer and compliment the décor of any room. Using only 3 brushes and 7 colors we’ll create this conversational masterpiece with a magnificent enchanting and loveable plush small woodland animal with a captivating expression, who’s excited about the day in front of him. So let’s get painting and let’s get sipping!
