1-Day "How to paint your dog" Workshop & Tutorial Package

Dates & Venue

The day starts at 10am and runs through until 4:30pm.  

Throughout the day Sam will demonstrate every stage for you to follow along with so you can paint a portrait of your dog in a fun style. 

The aim of the day is to complete the majority of your painting within the workshop day, you will then take your canvas home to finalise with the support of online video lessons and a closed Facebook group for extra tips and bonus lessons.

In November there's a sparkling tea and dog workshop arranged with The Beverley Barn in East Yorkshire, if you fancy a little something extra special.  It's a magical rustic converted dairy barn and you will be welcomed with homemade flapjacks, herbal teas and coffee

On the day we'll spend some time simplifying a photograph of your dog into a cartoon style design, then you'll get started on the stages of building up your painting.  The stages involved are:

Composition and design


Shapes and blocking

Eyes and nose

Hair and shading
