Richard Allen SWLA | Sketchbook Demonstration
Member of the Society of Wildlife Artists, Richard Allen SWLA, will display a selection of his sketchbooks.
Watch the artist colour up several field sketches with watercolour paints, live in the gallery.
"The bird-rich estuaries and marshes of the Essex coast have provided an endless source of inspiration and fueled a passion for field-sketching. I enjoy the immediacy of working directly from nature, trying to capture the life and vitality of wild birds, and the patterns of plumage, light, water and foliage. This essential field experience has proved invaluable when working on paintings in the studio, or when illustrating bird identification guides."
