Bring in your photo references from a variety of sources. You will be shown how to focus on the important aspects you need to enhance the emotion you felt when you found the photo. Keep the photo simple without too much background. Different animals display their emotions in various ways. Learn how to render these amazing subjects well, as you experiment with different techniques. Fur and feathers react differently to watercolour than they do to pencil, or acrylic. This workshop is broken up into 4 sessions, each 3 hours long.

Note: This class is geared to intermediate and advanced. Beginners are welcome, however a basic understanding of watercolour is needed. Everyone will progress and be challenged according to their own level.
