About The Event

Information and Materials

An Easter themed workshop as we look carefully at birds eggs and try a variety of different watercolour techniques to record the colours and patterns. This is great opportunity to play with colour mixing and layering with mixed media and collage to get a range of egg-citing effects...(sorry!) 

There is also be a bonus multicoloured mystery egg to have a play with too! These illustrated eggs look great as a museum style collection or as single eggs/small groups in a sketchbook or on cards

This class is suitable for all experience levels and there is a tracing sheet printable included if you are a non-drawer who prefers to paint and colour.

What do I get when I buy?

  • You will receive a Zoom link, materials list and printable downloads the morning before the class.
  • A recording of the class will be sent out the following day. You don't need to be there live and can watch the workshop in your own time
  • Unlimited access. The recording will be added to your Wild Ink library. You can create an account with this free doodlebird workshop

What do I need to take part?

A pencil (2B)/pen and a sketchbook/some paper is all you need to get going! If you're not sure what to use, the pencil and paper is a brilliant 'low barrier' starting point.

I usually have a collection of various art materials that I can access during these workshops including:

  • A sketchbook or cartridge paper pad
  • Coloured pencils/water soluable pencils and crayons
  • Some watercolour paint
  • An eraser
  • Pencil sharpener
  • Paint brushes (pointed size 2, 4, 6,10),
  • Kitchen roll
  • Graphite pencil 2B
  • Water pot
  • Palette
  • Sand paper/emery board (optional)
  • Optional: White wax crayon/oil pastels/masking fluid pen or liquid
  • A pen with water proof ink. Fine liners are great for this and come with different nib sizes!

I also like to use sketching sessions to test out things I don't usually draw with like:

oil pastels, chalk pastels, graphite sticks, charcoal etc. Sometimes, I use bits of old paper that I collage onto the picture. If you'd like to try this then have a rummage for some interesting paper samples, glue stick and scissors!
