2024 Johanne Mangi- Animal Portraits as Fine Art - Oil in Studio

Dates vary between September 5, 2024 - September 7, 2024
  • Details


     If you love painting animals of any kind you definitely will love this workshop. We will concentrate on the beloved dog but what you learn here applies to any four legged animal with fur.

     We will concentrate on the underlying gesture of the body along with the unique personality of your chosen subject.  Achieving aliveness will be the focus and end result.

    Demos will be conducted throughout the 3 days covering specific features as well as the overall portrait.

    Leave any concerns you have about drawing at the door. Drawing is the foundation but you won’t believe how much fun it will be! We jump in with both feet the very first day.  There’s a lot of ground to cover and we do it.

    We will have an opportunity to study a live model (or two) going well beyond a mere photograph. Of course, we will discuss how to use photo references and utilizing vital information required for their use but foremost, it is from life that we understand what we are looking at.

    You will progress from scribbling with ink to painting in a limited palette to then a full palette. The instructor will provide photographs but you are welcome to bring your own reference photos. Get ready it’s going to change your life!
