Drawing, Pen and Ink and Watercolour Painting of Birds – Free Workshop

September 4, 2021

9:30 a.m. to noon

In this drawing, pen and ink and watercolour course students will explore the fundamentals of these three artistic elements in the subject of birds in their surrounding environments.

Through in-class demonstrations, students will explore representational drawing, learning how to see, positive and negative space, using line, volume, proportion, colour, and mark-making.

In this lesson you are going to explore a few pen and ink techniques – enough to produce excellent pen and ink (microns) as well as line and wash with quality watercolour paints. Students will have a choice of over 60 examples of reference drawings to choose from created by the instructor. A variety of skill level references will be available.
