Diana Leighton has just completed her Pet Portraits Diploma course tutored by Gayle Mason. The painting and preliminary study below was completed for the final assignment of the course. We are thrilled that Diana enjoyed the course and completed it successfully. Diana sent Gail an introduction to herself and her experiences which we have added below. In addition we hope you enjoy reading about Diana and viewing her work.
I hope to be able to draw horses, cats and hopefully acquire the knowledge and skill to enable me to draw birds of prey or just birds! Furthermore I’d like to have commissions to draw animals mostly cats. I love cats and have five.
My experience to date has been zero in drawing animals. Not that I have never had the desire to. Due to never drawing any animals before, and was amazed at the fact that I could actually draw cats and dogs. I loved drawing them and bring them to life if I could. Consequently I realised their eyes are the most important part. I love to draw trees and countryside but I am not that good at it. Also I like to draw abstract.
In addition I am looking forward to using other media on this course but I like graphite and coloured pencil. Almost hopeless with pastel but will give it a go! I am really looking forward to this course and to working with Gayle.
Finally we wish Diana the best of luck with her future pet portraits along with continuing to enjoy her art journey.
