Fresh new paintings! Commission your own pet portraits through my art shop. Portraits are on sale through June 30th. Trinity Art League of San Antonio invited me to give a portrait painting workshop on Tuesday night at their monthly meeting. I demonstrated how to grid from a photograph, the basics of acrylic painting and color mixing for animal and human portraiture. I also gave some tips on obtaining a good photographic reference to work from (I prefer eye-level photos when painting pets).
There were quite a few newcomers to the meeting and some familiar faces from previous demonstrations. The members were very welcoming and there was a lot of creative energy in the room! In July I'll be teaching a three day workshop on the art of portrait painting, students will complete one 16" x 20" portrait in acrylic. The workshop will be hosted by the Commander's House in San Antonio; sign up is July 1st from 9-11 am. Details coming soon...contact me with any questions!
