Acrylic paint is an exciting and versatile medium and is perfect for capturing eyes, a subject many struggle to paint successfully.

On this day workshop, wildlife artist and illustrator, Kim Thompson, will lead you through the painting of a selection of different eyes with easy to follow steps from drawing through to creating a set of expressive animal, bird and human eye studies.

Participants will master the fast drying time of acrylics, learn about lighting and the details which come together to produce a realistic painting of the subject and will leave with a better grasp of acrylic paint and how to achieve great eyes in future paintings.

This workshop will appeal to those who are looking to establish a good understanding of using acrylics 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 eyes
  • - to learn tips and techniques to take on into your future paintings.
  • -to leave with the confidence to continue painting in acrylics
