Class Description

Many artists struggle to paint long-haired animals so that they look natural. On the other hand, many try to indicate hair on very short-haired animals - this will make them look unnatural. Only indicate hair where it can clearly be seen. For this dog portrait you will be using pastel pencils only - except for perhaps the background.

In the Lesson you will learn:

1. How to indicate short fur
2. How to develop the tonal ranges
3. How to draw the eyes
4. How to pick a good photo to paint from
