Great class that shows the entire process for creating a pet portrait - from thumbnails, to color, to completion! Thanks, Jennifer!

This is very in-depth class covering a range of techniques and observational skills. Great for beginners and experienced painters alike. Jennifer covers everything from overall composition and achieving natural proportion, down to capturing the detail in the eyes, expressing the dog’s hair with a painterly style, and adding detailed highlights. Definitely recommend.
