EVEN CRAZIER CATS AND VERY MIXED-UP MUTTS - Robin Avery
Two Sundays, January 13 and 27.
9:30 - 3:30 $100
This workshop goes beyond the first animal workshop which included transferring and doing value studies of your pet photos. We will touch briefly on those aspects but we will focus more on what YOU want to say and how you will use the elements of design to express it.
We will study the paintings of successful animal painters and try our hands at various styles.We will focus on color combinations, hard and soft edges, and color as a value to name a few.
Each of you will go away with several paintings and ideas for more.
