In this Pets Painting workshop, you will learn how to plan your painting, model your subject with value, color temperature, edges, and so much more. Instructor James Wu will provide step-by-step instruction, demonstrations to help you capture the likeness of your pet, and will show you how to put it all together in a painting full of personality. No previous painting experience necessary!

For capturing your darling dog or cat in a lovable, lifelike work of art, bring couple of pet photos you like. James will help you to select the best source photo for your piece and discover the easy process for quickly and accurately sketching any dog or cat. Use these simple techniques for sketching to canvas, and then explore value, color, and practice painting expressive eyes with realistic warmth. 

Follow James through demonstrations as you create your own pet painting using loose, fluid brushstrokes to develop fur and whiskers and layer colors for a dimensional effect. After learning the painting techniques from this workshop, you’ll have plenty of new skills to take your work to the next level!
