Attention animal lovers! Lisa Ober, PSA, IAPS-MC, will be offering an enthusiastic hands-on workshop loaded with information and instruction for outstanding pet portraits on UART Premium Sanded Pastel Paper.

Lisa’s step-by-step approach to pastel painting provides an excellent foundation for your future endeavors. You won’t be overwhelmed when approaching a new subject because you will learn exactly how to approach a pastel painting.

Each student will get plenty of attention and guidance throughout the workshop. Lisa will share all her secrets for creating realistic paintings of dogs, cats, horses or other furry creatures. Much of what Lisa shares can also be applied to other subject matter.

Whether you are new to pastel painting or have a lifetime of experience you are sure to pick up tips, tricks, and secrets that will make your animal paintings come to life. Drawing experience is helpful but you don’t need to be a pro. Just come with a willing and positive attitude and you will surprise yourself!

Topics covered:

  • The best pastels and surfaces for realistic dog portraits
  • Lisa’s organized step-by-step approach to pastel painting
  • How to apply pastel to achieve a great end result
  • What to do for all black fur or all white fur
  • Tons of tips and tricks to make your paintings the best they can be
  • How to create your own artistic voice using Lisa’s method
  • Suggestions for obtaining great pet photos
  • Answers to your pastel painting questions

All students will paint from the same photo reference (typically a dog) unless you have taken a workshop from Lisa before*. This will keep the class on pace and help us all learn from each other. It’s not a race, but most students will have enough time and instruction to complete a pet portrait during the workshop.
