Hello my wonderful creatives!

I am so excited to share my love and fascination for animals with you. It may be my extremely spoiled and high maintenance cat, or some curious chickens that I can't stop observing and sketching - any creature is welcome!

We will approach this theme with some new, surprising techniques and give our lovely friends a privileged spot on our canvases. If you aren’t experienced in drawing or painting, no worries - you can let your imagination go wild and create expressive creatures! This class is for any animal lover!

Join me and lets start painting! 

xo,

Yvonne

Here's a description of each of our special projects:

Lesson 1 - Acrylics and Ink

This is an exciting technique, working with acrylic and ink! We use reference pictures or invent a new, fun creature.

We look at the importance of layering paint to create depth and a way to achieve harmonious color combinations. We will use ink in a whole new way to enhance your painting! You are going to LOVE this!

Lesson 2 - Sketching and Painting Intuitively

This is a wonderfully relaxing way to create and will spark your inner child too! We start with some warm up exercises and just play to loosen up.

We plan our project before moving on to the canvas, placing it into a desirable composition. After preparing a base color that will unify our painting we will enjoy painting in a loose and expressive way!

Bonus lesson - Exploring the outdoors

There is nothing like painting animals from real life! I invite you to get outside, enjoy the sun, and observe animals with sketchbook at the ready!

I’ll show you easy, approachable ways to create playful and fluid animal drawings and paintings in your favorite sketchbook.
