Create a beautiful animal drawing
with Gemma Gylling of Valley Springs!

Have  you ever looked at animal art and wondered how the artist created the fur's shine, or have you thought the eyes looked so real you believed the eye was really wet? When an artist uses the right side of their brain, it becomes easy for them to see the object, which they want to create. Gemma will teach you to break an object down into small sections so you see only lines, shapes and colors, it then becomes much easier to achieve the realistic look of shiny fur or a wet eye.

Participants in Gemma's workshop will learn to create realistic animals using colored pencils. Gemma will share her secrets on the best ways to break a reference photo down into small manageable sections rather than viewing the drawing as a whole. Participants will do this by drawing an animal portrait on Suede Mat Board (Mat Board supplied by Gemma). If the animal portrait is not completed in the class they'll have the Step by Step instructions along with a photo for them to take home. When completed, they'll have a beautiful animal drawing that they created.
