Overview

Learn how to paint Australian native bees in this one-day workshop with accomplished local artist Cheryl Hodges.

In this workshop you will learn how to observe the structure and form of an Australian native bee, referring to a bee specimen as well as photographs and diagrams.

Use a microscope to investigate and draw smaller areas such as details on the head and legs.

Try watercolour techniques including washes, glazing and dry brush work for a detailed finish making the bee look realistic – hairy, shiny and three-dimensional using light, shade and colour.

By the end of the workshop, you will be well on the way to finishing a beautiful artwork using fundamental watercolour techniques learnt in this workshop. You will also learn some interesting facts about amazing native bees and will come away with a new appreciation for the bees and the art of capturing them in watercolour.

This introductory class is suitable for beginners to intermediate-level artists.
