Paint an Australian Native Bee in Watercolour Tuesday 19 March 2024 Canberra
One day workshop at the Australian National Botanic Gardens, Clunies Ross Rd, Acton ACT with Cheryl Hodges
10:00am – 4:00pm, Celia Rosser Room
In this workshop you will learn:
· To observe the structure and form of an Australian native bee, referring to a bee specimen as well as photographs and diagrams;
· To use a microscope to investigate and draw smaller areas such as details on the head and legs;
· Watercolour techniques including washes, glazing and dry brush work for a detailed finish; and
· How to make the bee look realistic – hairy, shiny and three dimensional using light, shade and colour.
By the end of the workshop you will be well on the way to finishing a beautiful artwork using fundamental watercolour techniques learnt in this workshop. You will also learn some interesting facts about our amazing native bees and will come away with a new appreciation for the bees and the art of capturing them in watercolour.
