Local artist Myfanwy Powell specialises in equine and canine portraits using acrylic or oil paint. She is a member of the Society of Equestrian Artists and has been successfully selling commissions for 6 years.

This is an exciting new course which covers scaling, drawing, painting and mark making techniques in order to capture your special pet on canvas. Students will mature their painting practice, develop their observational skills and achieve a painted background that compliments their pet’s portrait.
