Painting Animals with James Tennison

by caryjur@gmail.com |

On the first morning of this workshop we will meet at my studio in Langley and then setout exploring Whidbey Island for animal subjects to paint. There are a wide variety ofanimals to choose from — including sheep, cows, horses, alpaca, deer, birds andrabbits — and we will photograph a selection of these animals for painting reference.


?
After lunch, we will gather back in my studio where I will demonstrate my process forpainting from photo reference and my methods and materials for oil painting. Workshop participants will then use the next three days to create a painting (or
paintings) of animals they have photographed. Emphasis will be placed oncomposition, accurate drawing, correct values, fresh color mixtures and edge control.Personal attention will be given to each participant and further painting demonstrationswill be provided as needed.


?
A good quality camera with zoom capability is recommended, as is a laptop or tablet forthe studio days. Alternatively, you may have color prints of your reference photosprinted locally.
