What’s in August 2021 CP Magic
The August issue of CP Magic welcomes featured artist Kathryn Hansen.
A long-time California resident, Kathryn’s artwork lives and breathes. Her goal with each pet portrait or wildlife piece is creating a work of art that inspires viewers. “I want each viewer to realize their connection to all living things,” she says.
Kathryn’s intermediate level tutorial is an up-close-and-personal study of a black wolf that she chose because of the contrast in textures and colors. It’s a compelling and beautiful composition designed to delight and challenge you.
