A New workshop Painting British Birds
On Sunday 15th November 2015
This is a great way to start or improve your understanding of painting our native bird species. We will look at garden birds to start with and painting eyes, feathers and beaks. We will look at composition and habitat, trees, water and flight. I really get a buzz from painting birds and I hope that you too will become infected by the bug and include the subject in your future paintings, you will for sure go away with a great insight to be able to do just that.
