What’s it all about?
Would you like to draw a portrait of your pet or other favourite animal but don’t know where to begin? Perhaps you’re not sure what materials you should use or how to create fur textures? Join us to get some answers, and begin your first pet portrait.
What will we cover?
- Learn where to start your pet portrait
- How to work from photos successfully (as the darlings rarely sit still long enough)
- How to choose a pose and create your composition
- What materials you could use and some pros and cons
What will you need?
- Photos of your pet or chosen animal – ideally 2 x A4 sized photocopies: 1 x colour plus 1 x black and white (you will draw on this)
- Your favourite graphite/lead pencil, charcoals and your choice of colour medium (eg. pencils, pens or pastels)
