Contemporary Pet Portraits
Next class 2022
We all love our pets. How wonderful would it be to immortalise them in paint in a contemporary, lively and dynamic way?
Course suits: Those with experience of oil or acrylic paints with an interest in learning or improving on technique.
Objectives: To gain the skill and perspective to produce a pet portrait with confidence in a new and individual way.
Level: Some experience with paints - advanced beginner onwards.
Materials needed: See materials list below.
We will start the day with some sketching, using photographic references. This will involve advice, demonstrations and sharing of skills to enable the student to map out the form of the head and figure of an animal. Students are welcome to bring a good photo of their own pet if they prefer.
We will then go on to build a portrait using oil paint, with advice on how the student can develop their own style to create a contemporary painting.
By the end of the day you should have the confidence to go away and build on what you have achieved during this day.
