Wildlife art workshop by Heliocyan Wildlife art workshop by Heliocyan
Recently, I have been to a truly wonderful & inspiring art workshop of the 'Marwell Wildlife Art Society', with five fine tutors of the society. (One of the tutors, pencil artist Clive Meredith, happens to be here on DA as well):

This is what I worked on, work in progress...

We were free to use any traditional medium we wanted, we just had to bring our own material and reference photographs. I decided to bring this amazing photograph of a peacock-pheasant which cycoze took:


I really enjoyed myself! Every tutor showed us their tricks of the trade and how they like to work, as well the materials they use. I learnt quite a few things and tricks I did not know before. It was truly inspiring and very interesting to see how different everyone works.
Thank you so much, what a great day!!! I absolutely loved it!

Now, I must finish this... :)

Interesting to see. What's that pointy thing in the bottom middle of the photo?

It is my Chinese brush I use for inking the outlines. They are wonderful to draw very fine lines.
I got introduced to this technique by a friend of mine, :iconhimmapaan: who paints all of his works in those. I will still need to practise a lot to achieve his amount of details, he's just amazing with them.
