After my last exhibition ‘Entomology’ at China Heights gallery in April, I have grown to really appreciate the form and beauty of insects.
Their alien physiology has become something that I admire and fascinates my imagination. Their shiny and reflective outer shells and transparent glass like wings create a texture unique in the animal kingdom. Because of this they have become a subject that never fails to give me inspiration.
Over the years I have collected a small number of entomology artifacts that I have used as reference. I will bring these in to help inspire you, as well as print reference and my own materials that I use to show you how I create my works. We will experiment with a variety of materials like Watercolour & Gouache as I guide you through how to get the best out of insect art.
