Learn how to capture the movement and warmth of the animals you love. Portrait artist Erika Christensen Scully shows students how to select photo references for successful paintings that transform this classic genre into contemporary works of art. Attention will be paid to anatomy, techniques for painting fur and feathers, and identifying the unique character and gestures. Some drawing and oil painting experience is beneficial, but not required.
