Swept away in a wave of inspiration, we had the chance to explore a whole other world this month. We escaped to a magical, peaceful realm where unusual creatures float, flittering about their day, flashing neon colours as they swim.
Jennie from Wildlife Drawing provides classes in different locations, featuring an array of creatures, great and small. Our drawing class took place at Charterhouse Aquatics in East London. After a warm introduction and brief overview of underwater ecosystems and conservation issues, we were free to explore, observe and draw the aquatic life.
It was exciting to see a range of beautifully coloured fish, mesmerising coral, crabs, clams, seahorses, jellyfish, even a shark! The dreamy, blue hues and soft light from the aquariums made for an ethereal drawing atmosphere.
Want to have a go? Wildlife Drawing have a variety of spectacular drawing classes every month, from fish to wolves, guinea pigs to miniature pigs! Sharpen your pencils and check out their next workshop called Illustrating the Wild World, focusing on British wildlife.
Open to all levels of ability.
