PAINTING BIRDS IN WATERCOLOUR
A WORKSHOP WITH LORIE MEYER
April 4-5, 2020
Watercolour is the ideal medium for painting birds. Its soft, free-flowing lines are ideal for depicting birds' multi-layered feathers and deep connection to nature.
In this weekend workshop, you will learn how to work with watercolours to bring birds to life on your paper. With plenty of hands-on attention and gentle guidance, you will proceed through the full journey of starting the painting, working through the challenges that arise during its development and emerging with new skills and a beautiful work of art.
Saturday, April 4 | 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Sunday, April 5 | Noon to 4 p.m.
Location: Leir House Cultural Centre - 220 Manor Park Avenue, Penticton BC
