Painting big cat eyes in acrylic (1 day)

If you have ever wondered how to get that intense feline look in your painting then this workshop is for you!

In the morning, after a quick and simple explanation on eye anatomy and how the light works within, you will learn how to play on the cat’s expression with the shape of the pupil, the position of the eyelid and highlights.

In the afternoon, you will tackle the fur around the eyes and learn the secrets for a breathtaking hyperrealistic rendering. With a step by step demonstration, you will discover how to map the direction of the hair before building layers with a small brush and glazing to get the perfect color, plus all the final touches that will give life to your artwork.

At the end of the workshop, you will go home with a painting you can be proud of, the set of brushes you used during the class and techniques & knowledge that can be applied to many other subjects!

All material is provided; just bring an apron or a smock to protect your clothes. Suitable for artists of all levels.
