I’m back from teaching a two day ‘Beautiful Birds’ workshop at the Bramble Patch in Northamptonshire, which was as enjoyable as ever. I had some great students and the range and skill of the work produced was wonderful, especially as some of the students felt somewhat out of their comfort zone. You couldn’t tell this by looking at their work. I’ve posted here work in progress by each person.
Catriona is making a small flock of sanderlings for a beautiful beach scene, which is part of her City and Guilds work. This is the first little chap she was happy with after some experimenting. He was beautiful, and now I want to make a beach themed piece.
Jennie’s green woodpecker was a lovely piece of work due to her choice of subtle exact greens and just the right amount of detailing. There will be a background of tall trees and acetate printed fir cone images.
Here’s Angie with her two jolly bee eaters, lovely shapes and bold colours. Later a jungle background developed too, it will be beautiful when it’s finished. Hopefully she will post it on her blog. [see side panel for link.]
