This workshop will involve getting into a daily habit of nature-drawing in the context of a sketchbook. With a simple kit of materials you can carry with you everywhere, you will discover that you can be opportunistic about drawing from the natural world and this can help get us into daily creative habits of observation, discovery and wonder.
This class will run through different drawing exercises each day and practise these skills. We will explore the versatility of pen, ink and watercolour as fast and fun ways to record what we observe in the natural world. We will look at mark making and try different types of ink media in soluble and non-soluble form with the addition of quick watercolour washes and glazes. Our subject matter will include found natural objects, taxidermy and field trips.
