What you'll do
I will go through the process that I use to draw a portrait of your pet. Firstly, I will explain how to select a suitable photograph to work from (we will not work from life in this class). Once we have that selected, I will then help explain what materials to use, and then how to start the drawing, guiding you from start towards the finish, using simple drawing techniques and give tips and tricks on how to get true likeness in your portraits.

I have studied art all my life. In terms of qualifications I have a diasctintion in Arts Foundation, a BA Hons Fine Arts degree from Goldsmiths in London and a diploma in Integrative Arts Therapy. In my own practice I love to draw and paint, specialising mostly in free hand line drawings as well as portraiture. I use art as a catharsis following spinal injury.
