On Thursday 4th and Saturday 6th September I continued my adventures in teaching art by returning to teach at RSPB Forsinard as part of the Wild North Festival. I taught two and half hour sessions for beginners, taking them through basic pencil work, structure, use of mark making, use of positive and negative space and practice of observational skills. A foundation for drawing wildlife in the field.
And what a location to teach in. One of the most truly wild places in Britain, I am inspired every time I visit. Forsinard has stunning scenery for miles across the reserve, with plenty of wildlife if you’re looking – and you would be if you’d just been to one of my classes!
