Animalistics, or animal painting, is one of the most favorite genres of thousands of artists. Soft, fluffy, and so cute, animals just can't leave us indifferent!


Together with Irina Kukrusova, you will study the nuances of painting different animals and learn how to show their character. You will be able to create soft realistic fur without too much detailing, make lively eyes and wet noses


During the course, you will paint 3 delightful portraits – of a rabbit, a cat, and a dog. In separate lessons, you will learn the basics of making a pencil drawing, and then step by step perform the watercolor part. Under Irina’s able guidance, you will receive a lot of positive emotions and useful tips!
