Sunday Workshop – British Birds – 26th November 2017
Many species of birds are a common visitors to our gardens and countryside and are a really interesting subject to paint and draw. Their quickness, agility and grace in flight really does catch the eye. In this workshop we will focus on how to best capture a likeness of a bird and how to paint tricky areas such as plumage, beaks and claws.
The day will start at 10.00am so please arrive promptly at 9.50am. The morning session will start with a practical one hour demonstration in which I show you some of the techniques I use. Please feel free to ask any questions! You will then begin painting yourself and I’ll be on hand to help you create a beautiful image of a native British bird.
A hot fish and chip lunch (unless you request otherwise) will be provided at 1pm and, after lunch, we will continue with our painting. The day will finish around 4.30pm. Refreshments will be provided throughout the day.
The workshop will be held at my light and airy studio located at Paul Apps Fine Art, 7-9 Marine Walk Street, Hythe, Kent CT21 5NW. Local paid parking is available, free parking is possible in nearby streets about a five minute walk away from the gallery. The day is designed for oil or acrylic painters and canvas paper, boards and table easels are provided for use. Please bring your own painting equipment (e.g. brushes) and paints. Oil painters, please use Zest-it and not spirits to clean your brushes as this avoids the smell of white spirits/turps which some find unpleasant!
The day costs £90.00 and, owing to space, numbers are very limited. Book early to avoid disappointment.
