"Equine Elegance: An Oil Painting Workshop on Horse and Animal portraits"
November 12-14, 2024

In this workshop led by award-winning artist Ernest Vincent Wood III, both novice and experienced painters will enhance their skills in capturing an animal’s essence. Participants will delve into the fundamental techniques and principles of oil painting, focusing specifically on the structure and unique characteristics of animals and horses. Through a series of demonstrations, guided exercises, and personalized instruction, participants will learn how to capture the detail of fur and hair and explore what makes animal and equine subjects come to life: light, color harmonies, brushwork, and emphasis on shape and structure. From the powerful presence of a horse to the quiet, peaceful sleeping cat or the joy on a dog’s face, students will learn how to convey emotion and character through their paintings.
