3 Day Pet Portrait Class 14th June 2021
Create your own pet portrait using oil paints. Using a good reference photo we will take three days to produce a fantastic painting of yours or a loved ones pet. It can be a dog, cat, horse, ferret, budgie or even a bearded dragon!
I am on hand to guide and mentor you through the whole process so you are sure to produce a lovely painting you will be proud of.
The canvas size is A3 and we use professional oil paints and brushes so your painting will look great.
This course is suitable for beginners and as we trace the image on to the canvas we don’t spend time trying to draw in free hand so no danger of us going wrong!
What’s included in the price?
Morning refreshments of tea and coffee with biscuits.
Fresh and homemade lunch with a soft drink.
Afternoon tea or coffee with biscuits.
Canvas and all materials to produce your painting.
Tuition and guidance across all three days.
Overview of the day
We start on day one with a tracing, then an underpainting in burnt umber.
Then on day two we block in all the main colours having identified the three main colours we need, we mix them and block and blend them. we also add the eyes and muzzle, or beak!
The final day is spent refining and adding details, such as fine hairs, tweaking the darks and lights and bringing the painting a conclusion.
