From the velvet softness of a mole, to the fluff of a squirrel’s tail. The straggle of ostrich feathers to the sleek, streamlined plumage of a penguin. Animals and birds show a vast array of fur and feather types. In this course we will begin by discovering how to depict various fur and feather textures, using a range of brushes and mark-making. We will then progress to paintings of animals and birds, choosing the most suitable techniques for each of their coat or plumage textures. A great opportunity to revel in the enjoyment of painting fur and feather textures and detail. Acrylics and acrylic inks are ideal for this course, but oils, watercolours or pastels would also be suitable.
