Acrylic Animals Popular Study

Leroy the Camel

Having graduated from Campbell University I have this place in my heart for camels.  It is the mascot of the university after all. You wouldn’t want to be in there way if a herd were running at you.

I wanted to create a camel that had its own personality; however, not come across as disneyish (finished a previous camel painting that just came off too…happy? – I haven’t posted it yet, but will soon).

Been doing a lot of research on some new painting techniques that I wanted to try out. So here is a step by step creation of bring Leroy to life using those new techniques.


Draft 2, the idea for Leroy

And after the final layer and additional textures, completed:

MATERIALS: Painted in acrylic paints on a gessoed stretched cotton canvas, the patienting is coated in a non-yellow varnish. Painting comes unframed, but size is standard so will be affordable.
