Learn to draw and paint British Mammals. There are 28 native terrestrial mammals around the British Isles and we will be looking at drawing a selection of these, before concentrating on a few painted studies. The animals covered include; Red Fox, badger, Hedgehog, stoat, Mountain hare, red squirrel, otter, Hazel dormouse, harvest mice, wildcat, pine marten, wild boar, red deer, roe deer.
There will be a mix of drawing activities leading towards longer painted studies. We will look at anatomy, gesture drawing, movement, fur textures, colour, working from beautiful reference photos and occasional videos provided in an online folder and viewable on screen. This is a fun class with the chance to explore different media and techniques, working in pencil, charcoal, ink, pastel and watercolour, with demonstrations and tuition from artist and tutor Bethany Milam. Activities can be adapted to more limited media if needed. Suitable for all abilities including beginners.
Sessions are recorded and made available for participants to watch back for the duration of the course plus one month after. If you cannot attend live you can take part via recorded sessions and receive feedback on your artwork by email. You will receive access to an online folder containing lesson resources, reference images, materials lists, resources and extra topic information. Feedback can be given during lesson time. You will also have access to a closed Facebook group to interact with other students.
