We've all been touched by the unconditional love of a special four legged friend.In this workshop, you'll capture your pet's likeness in a hand-painted watercolor portrait! This workshop is a fun way to celebrate and honor our pets or to create a striking gift for the animal lover in your life.
Don't be intimidated by the idea of drawing a realistic image from scratch! We'll send you a link to upload a close up picture of your furry friend, and with the help of a little digital magic, we'll bring a lightly outlined sketch to the workshop for you on mid-weight watercolor paper.
Watercolor painting is a flexible and forgiving style of art and this workshop is a great opportunity for you to learn the basics of watercolor technique, working from light to dark, working wet on wet, and layering colors. We'll also teach you a few special tricks to paint the eyes so they look realistic. The 8x10 finished paintings that come out of this class are perfect to frame and hang on the wall.
WHAT'S INCLUDED :
- Two hours of workshop instruction on the basics of watercolor properties, brush use, and layering
