How to paint a pig from a photo

If you're looking to add a little pork to your paintings, why not try painting a pig from a photo? Here's how:

1. Find a photo of a pig that you like. If you don't have a personal photo, you can find plenty of photos online. Just make sure the photo is of a good quality so that you can see the details clearly.

2. Print out the photo or transfer it to a canvas.

3. Use a light pencil to sketch out the general shape of the pig. You don't need to be too precise at this stage, just get the basic outline down.

4. Once you're happy with the sketch, start painting in the basic colours. Start with the lightest colours and work your way up to the darker colours.

5. Add in the details like the eyes, nose and mouth.

6. Finish up by adding in any final touches like highlights or shadows.

And that's it! You should now have a beautiful pig painting that you can hang up and enjoy.
