F15 Sketching Birds in the Field Workshop
Sketching from life is a great way to learn to be a better observer and learn the finer details of bird identification. Learn the basics of sketching in the field, bird structure and anatomy through drawing exercises from photos, mounts, and live subjects. This class is geared for all skill levels, beginner to the more advanced. Sophie Webb has travelled from the Antarctic to the Arctic and numerous places in between to both draw and study birds. She co-authored and illustrated a Guide to the Birds of Mexico and Northern Central America (OU Press) and a Field Guide to the Marine Mammals of the Pacific Coast (UC Press). She has contributed illustrations to a variety of bird guides, books and magazines. She is a director of Oikonos: ecosystem knowledge, a research associate of Point Blue (formerly PRBO Conservation Science).
