Christine Pitt completed our Pet Portraits Course a few years ago and we wanted to show some of her exquisite pieces on our blog to help inspire our students. As you can see our Pet Portraits course isn’t just for painting domestic animals. You can paint all kind of animals! The techniques and tips are the same for instance for feathers and birds if you were drawing a pet chicken, budgerigar or parrot – to a Wren which Christine has painted beautifully. Equally the techniques learnt for drawing domestic cats are the same or similar when painting a black Panther like Christine’s amazing piece below.
The course is suitable for the beginner as at the start of the course there is a little mini drawing course to help get you started. Important to do both if you are a beginner or an intermediate. Drawing skills are so important when drawing animals realistically and so this part of the course is a fantastic resource. If you scroll to the bottom of the post you will see two pencil drawings that Christine completed to help brush up her drawing skills at the start. One drawing is of an earthenware pot and another of her local church. Both simply beautiful.
We hope that you have enjoyed viewing Christine’s artwork and found it helpful and inspiring. If you are interested in drawing animals, and would like guidance from an experience and professional pet portrait and wildlife artists tutor, why not take a look at our Pet Portraits Course and enrol today!
