The Landscape Artist

Making Your Studio Safe for Your Studio Assistants

Nothing but Pencils & Paper

Featured Artist: Kathryn Hansen


Kathryn Hansen is a long-time California resident whose 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.

Whether her subject is wildlife or a beloved pet, her focus is creating that special connection between the animal she’s drawing and her viewers.


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.
