Happy Halloween, beautiful artists, and happy almost Dia de Los Muertos aka Day of the Dead! It’s my favorite time of year, spooky but also meaningful! Join me this week to create a Day of the Dead sugar skull dog, in honor of all dogs that have passed onto the spirit world. This painting is also customizable to create a doggy (or kitty!) that resembles your dearly departed pet.

About the artist
I’ve taught acrylic painting for beginners for almost 10 years on a freelance basis through a number of different studios. I also have been offering “pop-up” in-home paint parties for private groups. I LOVE teaching painting, and my favorite thing is when my students unlock a love or a knack for creative expression because of taking my classes. I started this Youtube show at the end of the year in 2019, with the hope of offering my “beautiful but do-able” paintings and step-by-step instructions to a worldwide audience. I hope you enjoyed today’s step-by-step acrylic painting tutorial for beginners. Let me know what you thought of today’s easy acrylic painting tutorial in the comments section!
