WORKSHOP – Painting Animal Portraits in Oil/Acrylic – Linda ShawL_Shaw_9

Workshop: Sunday, February 22, 2015 – 9:30 am to 3:30 pm

This workshop will walk the student through the process of painting a portrait in oils/acrylic of an animal subject. The student will learn how to light and pose the subject, gather suitable photographic reference material and transfer the final image to canvas. The instructor will paint a portrait from beginning to completion, applying the underpainting in acrylic, and then laying in subsequent coats in oil paint. She will explain the proper use of oil paint and suitable mediums, choice of colour, lighting and value structure. Please note that the subject for this workshop is not limited to an animal portrait.
