Summer 2017 intensive workshop in Paris: Learn or improve the hyperrealistic techniques to paint big cats

On the program

One day of observation, sketches and photos at the " Parc des Félins " (Feline Park, 140 small and big cats from 30 different species and sub-species) to get to know your chosen model, its anatomy, behavior and character.

5 days of intensive practice in the studio with the selection of the reference picture and composition, the explanation and step by step technical demonstrations on how to draw and paint cats with a breathtaking hyperrealistic rendering. We will linger on the eyes, nose, ears and all the little details that bring an artwork to life.

At the end of the workshop, you will go home with the portrait of your favorite cat plus techniques and knowledge that can be applied to many other subjects!
