Prerequisite: Releasing the Bird
Leaning to enhance a bird by stoning and burning realistic feathers is critical, giving "texture to the canvas" that you will be painting. Students will be required to practice on scrap wood only for a limited time. The majority of time will be working on the kestrel carved in "Releasing the Bird."
I will be detailing my carved kestrel right along with the students Just follow my lead. Do as I do. Learn to slow down and take your time.
Feather groups will be identified and carved into your kestrel. Soft feathers, not a problem! Delineation of feathers, not a problem! Just do as I do. Follow my lead.
The is a one-day class. All materials are supplied but specific equipment and your "detail ready" kestrel carved in "Releasing the bird" is required.
This is a full day class and will not end until every one has a detail American Kestrel ready to paint.
Class size: 1-3
Bird of Study: American Kestrel
