WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

If you have ever wanted to have a go with acrylic paint and get to grips with a wildlife subject then this day workshop is for you.

Wildlife artist and illustrator, Kim Thompson, will lead you through the painting of a Fox portrait using photo reference with easy to follow steps, from drawing to finished painting in the course of the day.

Participants will master the fast drying time of acrylics, tackle fur, lighting, backgrounds and the details which come together to achieve a realistic painting of the subject and will leave with a better grasp of this very versatile medium. There will be the opportunity to experiment with brushes and sponges and the techniques Kim uses in her own paintings.

This workshop will appeal to those who are looking to establish a good understanding of using acrylics to capture a wildlife subject or who might have already tried acrylics and want to learn more. Kim is a considerate and encouraging tutor and will bring a relaxed approach to the day.

Aims of the workshop:

  • to gain a better understanding of painting with acrylics
  • - to learn how to paint fur
