About the event

Settle down with your sketch pad and pencils, and accompany us on an online tutorial on how to begin to observe and sketch sea birds. Local artist, Martin Gibbons, will show you how to begin field sketching birds by going through the basics of shape, form, depth and adding detail.

By following Martin's instructions, you will have sketched a puffin by the end of the session.

Aimed at adults, but suitable for children drawing alongside adults.

Presenter: Martin Gibbons, Volunteer, Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust

About 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.

Testimonials from the "Learn to Sketch Birds" online workshop in January:

"Thank you. I had a great time. I feel inspired and I learnt so much."
"It was excellent, very useful and fun, both about drawing birds and drawing other animals. I've drawn birds before but struggled by concentrating on their outlines rather than his structural method. Has changed my whole approach."
"Really lovely pace. Martin was a natural teacher and was clearly passionate about his subject.  Very relaxing!"
