Dog Portrait

Together we will work through a stage by stage process to create a Pet Portrait in Oils or Acrylics- using an ‘islands to oceans’ method of working. We are aiming to make the eyes come alive and give the animal and your painting lots of personality! I hope to inspire you with some new ideas and techniques to take away with you and apply to your own work.

You will be working from your own image, either from an I-pad OR you can use a photograph at least 5” x 5”. The animal’s eyes must be clear and in focus. Crop your image so that it is square. The head of the animal should take up most of the frame.
The better the reference image – the better the painting!

We will look at ways of applying the paint in a dynamic and interesting way: focusing on colour, brushwork and composition.

Lunch is included and a selection of tea, freshly brewed coffee, biscuits and delicious cakes are available throughout the day.
