About the Event
I've been wanting to put on a Birds of Paradise session for so long but it's taken about a year of persuading (or should I say, pursuing) the incredible Tim Laman to use his imagery! He really is the best in the business when it comes to capturing these incredible birds so I couldn't settle for anything less for you!
We will be drawing from both stills and moving imagery to get a really great feel for some of the many species of Birds of Paradise. It's going to be colourful and flambouant and perhaps one should come wearing some kind of feather boa and a pair of maracas!
This is an essentially unguieded drawing session but I am always happy to offer advise and chat throughout. There are on screen timers and prompts to help keep you straight and the whole atmosphere is creative, warm & welcoming.
All levels of creatives are welcome to these sessions and there is never any pressure to share your work if you don't want to. What you can expect is to find an encouraging group of animal-loving artists who love the challenge of drawing all creatures great and small, feathered or fishy, we love them all!
DO BRING PLENTY OF PAPER - you will get through a lot! The rest is up to you, but I recommend choosing materials that move quickly across the page for those moving animal studies.
PLEASE ARRIVE IN PLENTY OF TIME - the sessions are always jam-packed with footage so I try to start promptly at 7pm so it's a good idea to jump on the zoom ten mins beforehand to get settled. I can of course let you in if you arrive late (I'm no meany!) : )
I can't wait to draw with you!
