Drawing your subject: choose your days and choose your subject – Botanical or Wildlife – you may interchange between both and demonstrations are given in both.
If the actual drawing of a wildlife subject is a worry – you’ll be glad to know that many students trace the outlines of wildlife subjects. They can then concentrate on applying paint correctly. This course is about all aspects of correct painting techniques, not learning to draw.
