Over the weekend I went to a painting class. I used to draw a lot when I was younger, but this was my first attempt at a painting, so I was pretty nervous. The class was held at a place called Painting with a Twist, where they have different paintings each week and they teach you how to re-create a particular painting. Well this past Saturday was Paint Your Pet night, which was a little different, because we would all be doing our own paintings of our pets. Each person who enrolled in the class would email a photo of their pet and when you arrived they had you set up with paint and a canvas with a rought sketch of your pet. They had several artists there to assist you and guide you with your painting. Everyone was so nice and it was a wonderful experience that I would definitely do it again. The only drawback is that it only lasted 3 hours... I could have seriously spent a few more hours on my painting getting it just right. I mostly happy with it, except for the whiskers, nose and mouth area. I used to be timid about painting, but after this experience, I'm ready to do it again.
Here is my finished painting with the photo I was working with.
