"All Creatures Great and Small"
August 27-30, 2018
 

Discover how to create fresh, lifelike paintings of a variety of animals as you explore composition, color, texture, and storytelling. In this workshop, learn how to realistically capture texture without obsessing over detail, choose a dynamic point of view, mix colors to promote interest, and vary your brushwork for different effects. Through daily demonstrations, Susan will highlight various facets of painting animals followed by one-on-one assistance in your production of painted samples to reinforce each principle discussed. Expect to take home many small studies to refer to when working independently on your own projects. You will leave this workshop with the knowledge and tools necessary for portraying a variety of animals convincingly.
