EN-US;mso-bidi-language:AR-SA">A basic understanding of the form and anatomy of
birds both at rest and in flight will be developed through studying, drawing
and painting British Birds from photographs provided. The techniques of
applying watercolour to your studies will be explored through demonstrations
and then exercises allowing you to try the methods for yourself. How to produce
effective tonal work to show the three-dimensional form of the bird and portray
its plumage and subtle colours will be studied. How to visually capture each
birdís distinct behaviour will be discussed referencing the work of key
wildlife artists, along with the varied methods and materials they have used.&nbsp;</span><p><span style="font-size:12.0pt;font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,sans-serif;
