Studying and Painting Pollinating Insects with Cath Hodsman
Cath Hodsman, a Cotswold-based Wildlife & Natural History artist, who specialises in painting & sketching invertebrates and counts Buckingham Palace amongst her clients, will be leading this unique and fascinating day.
This painting workshop is aimed at watercolour painting beginners and for those who want to learn more about the hidden worlds that are all around us. It will examine the essential and fascinating relationship between pollinating insects and the plants that they live in, on and around. It will look at how plants provide food for insects, in return for pollination and how the insects obtain this food.
Each student will have exclusive use of their own dedicated microscope, magnifying glasses and macro photographs, as well as Cath’s own huge insect (ethically sourced) specimen collection, to look at the anatomy of insects, in order to produce a unique and detailed watercolor painting.
An equipment list will be sent out on booking a place on the course.
