'Fur & Feathers'

Had a really good day today taking a workshop at Rowlands Castle Painting Society.  The subject was 'fur and feathers', and I initially introduced techniques using colour pencils - blending colours using blending pencils and pen, leaving highlights, using embossing tools and how to capture iridescence in plumage such as Peacock and Hummingbird feathers. 

As well as using colour pencils we also used watercolour paint - favourite subjects closen from the resource table included jewel-like Jay's feathers and profile views of a Fox.

All of the students worked so hard and as you can see the results are amazing.

Thank you to all for making me so welcome !  (more pictures below)
