    This workshop will be taught by James Tennison. On the first morning of this workshop we will meet at my studio in Langley and then set out exploring Whidbey Island for animal subjects to paint. There are a wide variety of

    animals to choose from — including sheep, cows, horses, alpaca, deer, birds and rabbits — and we will photograph a selection of these animals for painting reference.

    After lunch, we will gather back in my studio where I will demonstrate my process for painting from photo reference and my methods and materials for oil painting.

    Workshop participants will then use the next three days to create a painting (or paintings) of animals they have photographed. Emphasis will be placed on composition, accurate drawing, correct values, fresh color mixtures and edge control.

    Personal attention will be given to each participant and further painting demonstrations will be provided as needed.

    ​A good quality camera with zoom capability is recommended, as is a laptop or tablet for the studio days. Alternatively, you may have color prints of your reference photos printed locally.

    This four-day workshop, held July 25 to 28, 2018, is open to all levels. The cost is $600. Sign up at
