Choose from Wildlife or Botanical subjects, and choose your days (1,2 or all 3) - you may interchange between both and demonstrations are given in both.

If the actual drawing of a wildlife subject is a worry - you'll be glad to know that many students trace the outlines of wildlife subjects. They can then concentrate on applying paint correctly. This course is about all aspects of correct painting techniques, not learning to draw.

Those who've been with Simon before often book several days and work on their preferred subject throughout (wildlife or botanical). Simon is relaxed and flexible and this is not a problem; he will demonstrate both on each day as required.

During Wildlife Illustration the group will be working from photographic reference therefore please bring any pictures you might be interested in painting birds or animals. Simon himself brings much materials as well as insects and a variety of other real specimens - butterflies insects feathers etc.
