Colourful Animal Portraits with Laura Bonnie

Sun, March 17, 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM
Sun, March 17, 2:30 PM - 4:00 PM

Join Laura as she guides participants through her creative process, from ideation, sketching, and idea-journaling through to creating colourful and vibrant acrylic paintings.

Inventive use of photo reference, planning of colour palettes and materials, as well as composition will be discussed. As the focus of the demonstration Laura will take a painting from a roughly drawn state towards a near-finished acrylic work, discussing technique and theme throughout.

Attendees will learn how to plan and execute a fun and appealing animal portrait (pet or otherwise) in acrylic paint.

Space is limited and registration is required.
