Drawing Waterfowl and Waders

September 8, 2013 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Long Billed CurlewLearn tricks and techniques to help you accurately and quickly draw migratory ducks and shorebirds. We will cover essential aspects of bird anatomy that is relevant for the artist and then explore ways of quickly transferring what you see to the page. How do you draw those long legs on shore birds? How do they balance? How do you draw shorebird and heron necks so that they do not just look like a bent garden hose? How do you capture the expression of a duck? All this and more. Bring a pencil, binoculars, and sketchbook.

Mapquest may get you lost. From Highway 84 (at the east end of the Dumbarton Bridge), exit at Thornton Avenue. Travel south on Thornton Avenue for 0.8 miles to the Refuge entrance on the right. Turn right into the Refuge and follow signs to the parking lot. The Visitor Center is located by the first parking lot to your right.
