“Walk on the Wildside” Watercolour Workshop
This watercolour workshop will show you the beauty and wonder of wildlife art. With the use of watercolour and other water-soluble mediums (e.g. gouache, pencil, ink, pastel, acrylic) it will enable you not only to paint feathers and fur but to paint attitude, character and photo quality about your subject.
It’s a fun watercolour workshop and a time to learn how to manage this medium and these wonderful natural creatures. The backgrounds and the “props” of wildlife art are important when you are painting realism.
Open to all comers 18 years and over.
Paul was born in August 1945. As a child, he loved to draw but had no formal training or direction. After school, he started window dressing at Myer Melbourne. He was called up for two years in 1966 as a conscript and served one year overseas in the army. In 1971 he went to England and spent three years travelling and working. Married in Australia in 1974, he began painting murals for children’s nurseries. In 1978 he became engrossed in wildlife art. After much research into ornithology and through self-taught efforts and experiments he started to get the hang of it.
