Learn to Sketch Birds Workshop

09 May 2020, 10:30 - 15:30 (Add to calendar)

Spend the day at Lemsford Springs NR with local artist Martin Gibbons.  Martin loves capturing light, landscape and wildlife in natural spaces. As a keen birder he has an eye for capturing fleeting moments quickly in the field. In this workshop you will learn techniques for drawing birds both in the field and from other sources. Martin will guide you through quickly drawing a bird’s key features and how to ensure their proportions are correct.  Using pens, pencil and paper, learn the techniques to draw birds in the field.  Starting with shape and form, Martin will guide you from the basics using pen and pencil to adding colour and depth to your sketches. 
Lemsford Springs has a small but light classroom, and two large bird hides, from which you will be able to sit and watch birds on the lagoon and in the margins.



Compost toilet available.
