Join nature artist Jean Mackay to take a closer look at bird eyes, beaks, feather groups, and anatomy. In this 1-1/2-hour presentation/work-along, Jean will show you how to render bird heads quickly and accurately in multiple poses. Jean will work primarily in pencil, but will add ink and watercolor to enliven a few of her sketches. Work along with Jean or just watch!
Jean Mackay is an artist, educator, and naturalist. She has been keeping an artist journal for more than nearly 20 years a way to study and share the beauty and diversity of nature, as well as to record the art of everyday living. Working in all kinds of settings, from tide pools to farm fields to her own backyard, Jean’s journals reflect a keen eye for detail and profound sense of wonder. Jean teaches at the Hog Island Audubon Camp in Maine and at the Art School of Columbia County in New York. Her blog, Drawn In, shares the ordinary, yet extraordinary things that she encounters close to home and farther afield. www.jeanmackayart.com
