Explore five methods of gaining accurate proportions—the fundamental skill of all realistic drawing. In this lesson set, we will focus on drawing animals, from portrait head studies to full-length animals in their environment. Learn techniques to render eyes, fur and feathers using pencil media, watercolor pencils, pen and ink. Working from photos, lessons will include freehand methods and the artistic use of tools, such as grids and proportional dividers. You are welcome to access Drew Bandish's website at: https://sites.google.com/site/artclassesdrewbandish/supplies

All experience levels welcome, especially the enthusiastic beginner! Do you find inspiration in representational subjects (trees, rocks, water, sky, people, animals, buildings, flowers, shadows, colors, etc.) but  confusion in how to paint them? Learn an elemental approach to artfully depict representational subjects in watercolor. Developing control of shape, color, value & texture in watercolor media is what this course is all about. Join like-minded adults and a dedicated instructor as we explore the process of creative picture making through lessons designed to develop proficiency with watercolor. Establish effective working procedures, mix and match colors you see (or want to see), master three textures, explore four methods of paint to paper, attend to three  attributes of effective shapes, then apply these design, drawing and technical tips to your own creative watercolor interpretations of any subject - from photos and imagination.You are welcome to access Drew Bandish's webiste at:  https://sites.google.com/site/artclassesdrewbandish/supplies
