Animal Portraits Speed-Painting Workshop, Ely, Sat 18th Feb 2017

February 09, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Lois Cordelia leads this "speed-paintingworkshop, using acrylic paints, with a focus on the ever popular theme of animal portraits.

Lois encourages you to let go conventional ideas about realistic colour, and instead be expressive and spontaneous, launch into bold, sweeping brushstrokes on a large scale, and communicate more with less.
We will be working loosely based on photographic references (please feel free to bring in some of your own!), but the emphasis will be more on freedom of expression than on accurately copying an existing image. This is an ideal workshop for beginners, for those wishing to improve their animal portraiture, and for anyone wanting to loosen up their painting style.
