Learn animal and pet portraiture in Pastels in Falkirk

A 5-week evening course learning how to paint an animal portrait using pastels.

This is a step-by-step Pastel Painting Workshop.

Suitable for beginners and intermediates who wish to delve into the colourful easy medium of pastel painting.

People love animals and their pets. Doing commissioned portraits is a great way to earn an income creating art or simply a side hustle for anyone who is artistically inclined.

Discover how to paint a variety of animals, both domestic and wild, using vibrant soft pastels taught by River Peacock from The Magic Peacock at D2 The creative centre in Larbert, Falkirk.

Each Tuesday night of August 2021 from 6.30-9.30pm, in a calm, friendly, and socially distanced environment.

After completing this 5-week course you will have enough references in your armoury to tackle any animal or pet portrait you choose.

The course will include demonstrations to help you master eyes, noses, scales, feathers, whiskers, and thick, curly, long, wet, or sleek fur, in a variety of colours, even the dreaded black and white.

In the demonstrations, River will be using her own style but will encourage you at every turn to find your own artistic voice.
