14th May Pet Portraits in Oil with Lucy Burton
Pet Portraits in Oil with Lucy Burton
Saturday 14th May 2022
10am – 4pm Attic Studio
All abilities welcome – improver, intermediate or advanced
We are delighted to introduce new tutor Lucy Burton who will be teaching you how to paint a portrait of your pet in oils. Together you will work through a stage-by-stage process to create a portrait in oils - using an ‘islands to oceans’ method of working. We are aiming to make the eyes come alive and give the animal and your painting lots of personality! Lucy hopes to inspire you with some new ideas and techniques to take away with you and apply to your own work.
You will be working from your own image, either from an I-pad OR you can use a photograph at least 5” x 5”. The animal’s eyes must be clear and in focus. Crop your image so that it is square. The head of the animal should take up most of the frame. The better the reference image – the better the painting! Techniques covered include composition, tonal grounds, colour mixing, alla prima and brushwork.
“I’d describe myself as a creative all-rounder! I have a degree in ‘Industrial Design & Technology’ and paint regularly ‘alla prima’ in oil paint, always aiming to produce a piece of art that is full of character and colour. A good composition and the freedom to experiment with colour and interesting brush marks is what inspires me most and it’s what I enjoy teaching others. I’ve exhibited in ‘Warwickshire Open Studios’ and taken part in ‘Landscape Artist of the Year’ as a wildcard artist.” www.lucyburtonart.com
