SUMMARY

The wolf is central to the folklore and culture of the people of Europe and the North American Plains. Nothing evokes the shiver down the back as much as the wolf’s howl and though we may talk about the Big Bad Wolf, it is also the ancestor of our beloved pet dogs. Don’t forget Romulus and Remus being raised by the wolves either...


So our relationship with the wolf is complicated. Liz hopes to capture a little of this in a loose and lively portrait using line and wash.

Liz will start with washes of colour and then use pen work to develop structure and detail. You will then return to washes and perhaps add in a little white pen work too.

Along the way, you will learn lots of techniques which can be applied to other animal portraits. In particular you will explore the eyes and fur texture, so if you fancy painting its domesticated cousin, your dog, this workshop will really help.


Liz’s third book, Line and Wash Painting, was published in January 2022 by The Crowood Press.
