ArtUs Co Painting Pet Portraits in Watercolor, Oil, Acrylic, or Gouache

Instructor: Glenn Cernosek

Ages: 16+

Class Description:

Learn to paint pet portraits, step-by-step, from photo reference. Cernosek will demonstrate his approach and guide you as you paint your pet or paint the same pet as Cernosek. You can then use this approach for painting your pet. You will also learn the secrets of the old masters to draw the subject more accurately on your painting surface.

Each day, Cernosek will demonstrate each step and then pause as the students will complete that step in capturing a realistic likeness.

If you are painting your own pet, you will need an 8” x 10” photo of your pet. The image needs to be sharp and show the patterns and direction of hair growth. If you choose to paint the same subject as Cernosek, he will provide you with the sharp photo, as well as another copy to use for drawing and a transfer sheet to get the image on your painting surface.

What to bring: Students will be required to bring their own supplies. A supply list will be emailed to you after registering.
