Equine Oil Portrait Work in Progress - Jellybean

Oil on Canvas - Horse Portrait Work in Progress
This is a painting of a sweet horse named Jellybean that I have been working on.  It is still very rough and have only done one pass on the body and a second pass on the head, so a long way to go yet!

I love the markings on this horse and plan to do a few more paintings and sketches of her as she is just so unique.  The first layer of the background has also been applied in a neutral mid-gray value and the next layer of the background will be painted in color so that I further refine the color of her hair.

If you are interested in painting in oil with me, I have a class starting this Monday at the Port Moody Arts Centre, from 12:30-2:30pm and there are still a few spots left.  Please visit http://register.asapconnected.com/ClassDetail.aspx?pk=436228 to register online or call 604-931-2008.

Student Work from Acrylic Abstraction Class - New Classes Starting on Thurs, Nov 12

Student's Work - Acrylic Work in Progress
This is a piece one of my students is working on during our Acrylic for the Absolute Beginner classes at Port Moody Arts Center.

This is only the second layer but it is looking so cool already I wanted to share it!  By limiting the colors and using transparent pigments she will be able to build up her layers to create luminous depth without the worry of things getting muddy.  Looking forward to seeing the finished piece!

If you are interested in this workshop, you can register directly online  or call 604-931-2008.
