My Nature Diary Painting Activity (Session 7)
July 3, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
Join our next Nature Diary painting activity!
Each month throughout 2021 Majjistral Park we will be hosting an online activity demonstrating how to draw wildflowers, insects, birds, mammals and more.
For the month of July we will be drawing and painting the colourful Ornate Wrasse (Lhudi).
This activity is aimed at children but adults are welcome too.
Date: Saturday, 3rd July 2021
Time: 3:00 – 4:00pm
Duration: Approximately 1 hour
Paper*, Pencil, Rubber, Newspaper (to protect surface from paint), Paint (ideally watercolour)**, White paint (poster/acrylic/gouache), Water pot filled with water, Palette to mix paint in, Old t-shirt/ material (to wipe brushes), Soft paint brushes (thin and medium sizes), Rough paper to test colours.
*To create the whole Nature Diary you will need 13 pieces that are the same size. The best paper to use if you are using watercolours is watercolour paper. You can use paper from a watercolour pad so that you do not need to cut the paper. If you do not have watercolour paper thick painting paper (eg. sketching paper) should also be ok but it would be a good idea to test it with your paint first.
**Watercolour paints can be substituted with coloured pencils or poster paint but watercolour works best! Our Events Officer buys Winsor & Newton (student range) from local art shops. You do not need to buy the most expensive ones and you also do not need to buy all the colours. The main colours you need are: cadmium red, alizarin crimson, ultramarine blue, cobalt blue, lemon yellow, cadmium yellow, yellow ochre, and burnt umber.
