We have received a wonderful email from student Mel Newing who is currently studying with tutor Gayle Mason on the Pet Portrait Online Art Course
Mel said …
“I’ve just submitted my first assignment into Gayle for the Pet Portrait course which I recently signed up for. I’ve been drawing since 2012 teaching myself along the way, but finally decided that I needed some direction to take my work to the next level.
The first piece we had to submit was a still life of a jug. I was slightly apprehensive – the last time I drew anything like this was at school in about 1994! This is the graphite pencil section so it’s all about tonal work. The first animal piece was a chocolate labrador. Here’s my attempt – I can see where I need to improve and the things I need to work on but I thoroughly enjoyed drawing this character!”
We are thrilled that Mel is enjoying her course and the assignments and are looking forward to seeing more of her work in the coming weeks and months. If you would like to join Mel on the Diploma, why not pop over to our Pet Portrait Online Art Course page where you can find out lots more about the course and tutor Gayle.
