SAA Live – Vic Bearcroft Workshop – Close Encounter in Pastel

 Join Vic in creating this charming painting of an adorable wolf pup called Tala, from the UK Wolf Trust. Wolf pups, like most young animals are naturally curious. Vic explains the inspiration behind this painting

“When I took the original photo, I can’t remember what she was looking at so intently. However, it wasn’t too difficult to imagine her focusing on a bee in more natural surroundings.” 

In this workshop, you will learn how to create soft fur textures and atmospheric highlights as well as painting a natural-looking backdrop from imagination; not forgetting the busy bee for that final ‘close encounter’!
