In this Oil Painting Workshop, we will create an alla prima impressionistic oil painting portrait of your beloved pet! Artist Kimie Joe will teach you the basics of oil painting, stroke-by-stroke, as you focus on the highlights, shadows and details of your precious pet. All types of animals work - Cats, Dogs, Horses, Rabbits, Birds - they are all great to paint! Your final painting will be an impressionistic, stylized work of art!
Includes canvas, template preparation, brushes, oil paints, medium and all other supplies! Bring an empty pizza box or something to transport your painting home. It will be wet for several days!
How it works: Immediately after purchasing your ticket, email a photo of your pet to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will use the photo as a reference to paint at the event. Your pet will be the focus of the painting. Backgrounds will not be included. Please only one pet per canvas. Please email your photo at least 3-days prior to the class date.
HELPFUL TIP: A great portrait starts with a great picture! Choose a high quality photo that shows your pet in a forward facing position so you can see all of the features on your pet's face! Head shots, close up, color photos with outdoor lighting work best. If your pet is one solid color, try to capture them in lighting that creates highlights on their fur. Use pictures where your pet is clearly visible.
Feel free to bring your favorite snack and beverages to enjoy while you paint.
