I was inspired to paint this beautiful Hereford Bull because of the gentleness in his eyes, the colors that I saw in his coat and his expression. This is an Acrylic, 8 x 10 inch painting. I start out with a very strong under painting and built up translucent colors layer upon layer until the last layer when I added opaque colors. I had a lot of fun painting him and am delighted in the way he turned out.

by Manuel Sanchez
Hi,just wanted to get some feed back on my work.I am 51 an Ex Flamenco dancer who always loved drawing and painting.I use to draw in school many years ago,but never had the courage to paint.I decide to get an easel and some paints and started to paint,about 6 months ago.I have no painting knowledge or experience,except what i learned on youtube,and other free art tutorials on the web. Sorry about the free stuff,but I am handicapped and do not have any money to study art.I will deeply appreciate any constructional and good advice to help me keep learning.Please feel free to give me your comments. I know I will study all my life and need it badly but I have a passion for art.My father always use to take me to art museums when I was a kid and always wanted to be a painter,I don't know if its too late for me,but I will keep on trying,My favorite painter is Velázquez. Thank you so much for this opportunity and for all your help.
