This exciting two-day workshop will provide plenty of insights into drawing wildlife and wild places, open your eyes to the character of birds, and enthuse your drawings and paintings with the beauty of the natural world.

Mark’s approach is so refreshing – he will help you find lines you never knew existed (and then lose them), he will make you think about colour and markings.  Above all he will give you a deeper understanding of birds and of your own approach to drawing and painting wildlife.

Pensthorpe is an award-winning mix of nature trails, beguiling woodland walks, and a showcase for British wildlife and nature conservation.  It is a series of gravel pits that have been made into a fantastic wildlife area, not only native birds but also wetland areas which are stunning for flowers and butterflies.  Pensthorpe is recognised as a national breeding site for many species, Long-Tailed Tits, Female Marsh Harriers, Kingfishers, Cormorants and Spotted Flycatchers.
