This workshop will focus on creating paintings of animals that exhibit emotion. Working with value, color and brushwork, what to leave out and what is essential. The artist will do a demo each day before students begin painting.
Beginners to more advanced students are welcome. Artists are encouraged to bring their own photographs as reference. Within the great tradition of painting, Linda St. Clair has set herself apart as an innovator who creates animal portraits that explore the personalities of creatures great and small. Whether her subjects are of the barnyard, domestic or wild variety, they are undeniably the product of an artist inspired by wildlife’s vital energy and its broad emotional range.
