Lavinia Hamer – Animal Portraits in Pastel Pencil

Date: 13th August 2016
Time: 10:00 am - 4:30 pm
Spaces: 8


Working from photographs of you pet or an animal that interests you, Lavinia will show you how to capture the attitude and character of the subject. Discover how working on Valour Pastel paper will allow you to bring realism to fur and feathers, through a combination of soft and fine lines. If you have them you can also combine soft pastels with pastel pencil marks.

Includes homemade lunch, refreshments and cream tea
