Watercolor Cat and Kitten Portraits
Watercolor Cat and Kitten Portraits - July 21st from 9:30 AM - 5:00 PM - Price: $81
Workshop Instructor: Pat Banks

If you are a cat lover and want to paint the charm and character of a cat this workshop is for you! A cat portrait is still a portrait! We will focus on the head, so we can look at the details of painting fur, eyes and other facial details on “Cleo’s” portrait, then you can work from a photograph of your choosing or from one of the reference photos to create your own work. The quality of your portrait will depend on the detail and quality of your photograph! We will learn some drawing skills, watercolor painting techniques, brush handling, composition and values.

This workshop focus is on teaching watercolor techniques and drawing skills to build the tool box of each participant. With the skills and techniques learned participants will work to their level of development and apply their new skills and techniques to the painting project being created.
