In this acrylic speed-painting workshop themed on animal portraits, Loïs will encourage you to let go conventional ideas about realistic colour, be spontaneous, and launch into bold, sweeping brushstrokes. You will be working on a large scale, loosely based on a black and white photograph.


Feel free to bring in some animal portrait visual references of your own if you would like, or choose from a selection on offer on the day.
