Fur And Feathers
Over the 10 monthly sessions you will learn to paint beautiful animals, birds and other natural history subjects with precision and accuracy. You will look at how to depict the various textures associated with wildlife painting, such as fur, feathers and insect wings in pencil and in watercolour, using precise measuring techniques and accurate colour mixing. Over the 10 sessions you will aim to produce one or more finished paintings.
This unique course gives you eight full days of tuition with time to practice what you have learned in between allowing you to really immerse yourself in the subject. Some previous painting and drawing experience would be useful, although not necessarily with wildlife subjects. Hard-working beginners are welcome. Taught by Sharon Tingey.
