drawing course at ZSL London Zoo

on Sunday 27th September I attended a one day course on drawing birds and exploring their anatomy with artist Katrina Van Grouw

some of my drawings – pencil, coloured pencils and pro-marker pens

There was also an interesting lecture that explained bird anatomy and structure. I learnt a lot and I feel I have a better understanding of the skeletal and muscular structure of birds which helped  me to observe more and produce much  better drawings. It was also encouraging to hear Katrina say that    Not every drawing produced will be successful  and other useful drawing tips. It was a very interesting and helpful day and it was very inspiring to share each attendees work at the end of the day
