The Wildart Workshop in Stromness went well on May 14th and Aileen Meek sends us the following report:
Just to say that I joined the Wild Art Workshop this evening. I was part of a group of 6 people, hanging onto Tim's every word in the hope that I would eventually manage to produce some pencil line sketches that would represent the birds we were about to observe!Tim described the anatomy of the birds, clothing the skeleton with feathers to build up the outward appearance. Out on the pier, we had good, close-up viewsof Great Black-backed Gulls, Herring Gulls, Black-headed Gulls and Bonxies.Terns and Eiders made briefer appearances. Tim offered lots of advice,encouraging us to focus on the body shape and form of the wings of the birds inflight.
At the end of the drawing session, all of the group agreed that they had enjoyed the workshop and had benefitted from Tim's tutoring and would like to come back on the 28th for a furthersession. 7 people are booked for the next session which means that there are a few spaces if anyone else would like to have a go!
If you fancy having a go at drawing birds then don't delay in contacting Aileen Meek on 01856 851755 to book a place for May 28th. Full details of time, place,etc. from Aileen.
