With the use of watercolours 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 give a photo quality to your subject. It’s a fun workshop and a time to learn how to manage this medium and these wonderful natural creatures.

Paul Margocsy workshop cont …

Composition is the main attribute to any painting and, with this achieved, the technique used will excite and enthrall, not just the artist, but the viewer. You will position your subject, paint the surrounding habitat and give a totally realistic look to your art.

The backgrounds and the “props” of wildlife art are important when you are painting realism. I will also show you how to utilize airbrushing as a background technique. This will give you another dimension in art whilst having fun at the same time. You will be shown different ways of tackling this.

I’m sure you will find this workshop to be enthralling, exciting and totally fulfilling … painting nature can be fun.
