From author, licensed artist, and popular Skillshare instructor Amarylis Henderson, Expressive Little Animals (Drawing and Painting) shows readers at all skill levels how to draw and paint animals in a variety of mediums and styles.

In this follow-up to Expressive Little Faces (Drawing and Painting), author, artist, and popular Skillshare instructor Amarylis Henderson presents her practical and creative techniques for drawing and painting animals in a variety of mediums and styles, from realistic to cartoon.

• Basic Supplies. Learn about the sketching and painting mediums you'll use in your work, including watercolor, inks, markers, colored pencils, and cut paper.
• Essential Elements. Discover the scope of sizes and shapes of animal features from nose to tail.
• Emotions and Expressions. Learn to adjust basic shapes, postures, and poses to convey a range of animal emotions and expressions, from sly and sneaky to angry to curious.

As you explore your creative options, you'll find that working small is an easy way to relieve pressure and open yourself to play as well as to learning the techniques and approaches that Amarylis shares in this book.
