"Let the Fur and Feathers Fly" - Upcoming Workshop on Painting Wildlife

Ryan KirbyComment

I promise you this will be a great time, and despite the title, we will not be harming any animals in the process - only painting them. From Saturday, October 17 - Monday, October 19th, I'll be teaching a workshop entitled "Let the Fur and Feathers Fly" at the Charlotte Fine Art Gallery in Charlotte, NC. 

In this three-day workshop, I'll discuss not only the fundamentals of depicting animals on canvas, but also the inspiration behind the images themselves. I will provide photos of wildlife for reference during the workshop, as well as preliminary sketches to work from. You'll learn how to creatively and accurately paint both fur and feathers, completing one painting exercise for each. All levels of experience and painting mediums are accepted. I'll be working in oils, but feel free to bring acrylic, watercolors, whatever your preference.

Pre-registration required. The gallery accepts Visa, Discover, or Mastercard over the phone at 704-541-0741. You can also stop by during gallery hours with payment.
