IMG 1211 (Shane Swann)Overview: CDS member Shane Swann will run an online one day workshop, demonstrating the techniques that he uses to produce his wildlife drawings.

The introduction will include how he became interested in art, what lead him to focus on wildlife illustration and the message behind his work.

In the first part of the workshop Shane will focus on demonstrating multiple linear based drawing techniques, using fine tip pens and pencils - to give viewers an idea of the mechanics behind his methods. Workshop participants can then practice themselves.

In the second part Shane will work on producing a wildlife portrait, which participants can observe and use as inspiration to create their own image using their own reference photo. Questions and advice throughout the session will be most welcome.

UntitledAbout the tutor: I have been creating artwork for most of my life, and have experimented quite considerably with different styles over the years - ranging from abstract to portraiture. This has enabled me to explore a variety of media and techniques. In 2011 I became interested in drawing local wildlife. However in 2014 I was working on a drawing of the extinct British wolf - whilst gathering information about this, I became aware of many other native species that had also been lost due to human activity. This inspired the beginning of an ongoing, continuously evolving series of art that focuses on endangered and recently extinct animals, as well as related environmental issues. I feel highlighting and promoting awareness about these issues is important, and art is an effective tool in dong that.

What you need for the workshop: 

  • A photo of a fur/hair covered animal to use as reference.
