We have such fun painting in our adult art classes on Wednesdays and Thursdays at The Studio.  Everyone begins at whatever stage they happen to be in the process from absolute beginners to advanced.  They select their own subjects to paint and we help them get to a nice finished product.  Kate painted this beautiful version of a dancer and Wanda did this marvelous rendition of her grandson leading her favorite Llama.  Perfect ladies!  If anyone would like to learn to paint in oils or acrylics join us at The Studio on Wednesdays or Thursdays.  Click here for details or contact kwalker@kellywalkerstudios.com

Llama painting with reference photo

Llama painting with reference photo

A few weekends ago I took an art workshop in Staunton at the Beverley Street Studio School.  What a neat place!  The workshop was all about painting animals.  So, of course, the week before I went to the workshop I took photos of animals I have been wanting to paint  — like a llama.  I have some friends with all kinds of animals and they allowed me to come and take pictures.  This Llama, I think his name is Tony, was a real character.  He kept photo-bombing every time I tried to take a photo of the other llamas that were there, especially the baby llama.  He and the other two adults did  not want me to photo the baby.  So long story short, I got lots of cool photos of Tony but no good ones of the other three.  Here is the first painting of Tony.  It’s a 6″x8″ oil on canvas.  It is available at Delilah’s or by contacting kwalker@doubledogdesigns.com

These are some of the photos that I got yesterday.  A good friend was kind enough to let me come to his place and get some Llama shots.  I have been wanting to paint one so here is my chance.  Just look at that FACE!!!
