Learn techniques to render life-like birds in watercolors from wildlife artist Steve Hamlin.  Starting from a provided preliminary drawing, explore painting backgrounds, plumage, and wet and/or reflective surfaces like eyes and beaks.  We’ll discuss the form, movement, behavior, and typical habitat of our subject, and the way it is affected by light and shadow.  Some experience with watercolors is recommended.  Most materials will be available for loan or purchase. One quarter-sheet or 11×14” Arches cold-pressed paper required–available for purchase at the class. Bring a lunch or dine at the Blake House Café. Supply list provided.
