Nature Challenge : Unleash the Inner Artist

Unleash the Inner Artist.

Today's wildlife nature challenge for 30 Days Wild was to unleash the inner artist. The fun art done at the time is not available to post, so here is some creative artwork on wildlife and nature studies, done previously at one of my children's art workshops in Kent by one of the children. This was in an art session for children aged between approximately 3-7 yrs. It was great fun for everyone!

"I know the boys really enjoyed the process, being creative and being free to make a mess whilst producing pieces. As a parent I was really pleased to see an end result and have something to show for their efforts. They have all put their pictures up in their rooms and the pots have tomato plants in."(Jo)

British Wildlife Watercolours

British Wildlife Watercolours.
British wildlife, birds and flowers are carefully painted using watercolours, based on the wildlife and botanical subjects from the garden and local woods.
Wildlife such as small British woodland animals (badgers, foxes, squirrels, mice, bats, deer, otters, wild cats, stoats, weasels - even wild boar, pine martens, beavers and, one day, lynx may return to the wilds of Britain!) and UK garden birds, butterflies and bees, along with ladybirds and dragonflies, add to the joys to be found in the garden, or just beyond, all year round.

Watercolours can be used to capture the beauty in the animal or plant subject using the fluidity of the paints.

Everyone's favourite! A beautiful owl resting amongst the bluebells.

Watercolours can be used in a variety of wildlife paintings for different effects based on creative preferences. For the traditional, realistic bird and wild animal paintings, dry applications of paint are built up slowly to create depth and form…

British Wildlife Coloured Pencils

Drawing wildlife using coloured pencils

Coloured pencil wildlife art paintings and drawings. 

Detailed wildlife and botanical drawings and paintings can be gained using coloured pencils which range from student grade to professional grade.

Wildlife Drawing Classes
Wildlife art classes in drawing wildlife.
There is more to be gained from drawing British wildlife than drawing and sketching alone – with wildlife art classes, there can be enjoyment in discovering about some of Britain’s favourite animals and birds in the company of other artists and nature enthusiasts, through drawing wildlife classes which bring together like-minded individuals in a pleasant setting.

Drawing animals and birds from life is an excellent way to engage with the natural world around us. An understanding of wildlife anatomy, behaviour and environment, through observations and sketches, can help build the skills and knowledge necessary for more detailed graphite or coloured pencil drawings of British wildlife and birds.

Drawing class subjects include the familiar favourites such as: foxes, squirrels, hedgehogs, mice, deer and birds, plus some of the more elusive characters from the British countryside – badgers, otters, wildcats, newts, hawks and…
