You can sketch birds!
November 18, 2013 @ 7:45 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Have you ever wanted to sketch birds? You can do it. With a handful of tricks and a some practice you can make fast field sketches of birds. We will learn how to block in the basic shape of a bird and then tackle what to do when the bird moves. You do not need a photographic memory. Learn to smoothly transition between drawings as the bird you are watching takes different poses. You will also strengthen your ability to pick up on some of the subtle clues used by the top birders to ID by gestalt. Bring your own pencil and a sketchbook. The talk will start a little before 8. Doors open at 7pm for refreshments and socializing, and folks should arrive at 7:45 if they don’t want to sit through some Madrone business announcements. However no guarantees of a good seat!
