Unleash your creativity with this beginner-friendly step-by-step tutorial brought to you by The Art Sherpa. Learn how to paint an abstract horse using acrylics, combining abstract expressionist elements with figurative expressionism. Acrylic April 2023 marks our 5th year of the first Daily Painting course designed for beginners who want to improve their abstract painting skills with acrylics. 


🎨🖌️ Follow along with The Art Sherpa as you explore the fantastical colors, loose and rough application of paint, and the nondescript background created with palette knives that contribute to the abstract expressionist elements of the artwork. Delve into the recognizable horse subject and the realistic eye within the otherwise abstracted rendering, which introduce elements of figurative expressionism.

🎥💬 Join our daily live stream chats to connect with a supportive community of fellow painters who share your passion for art and creativity. Our 100% real-time instruction, multiple camera angles, and clear explanations make it easy for you to understand and enjoy the painting process, regardless of your skill level.
