About This Class

Welcome to this Art Class by myself Beatrice Ajayi. It is based on the process I use myself to create artwork. It shows the progressive stages from beginning to end on how to produce art in my style but can easily be adapted to implement your creative approach and individual style. It shows one way to getting started with out second guessing yourself. Just create

This class is called ‘Bat Illustration In Watercolour’, it was inspired by a memory as a child having had a two hundred year old bat tree in our garden. 

In this class we work on three bats in the tutorial, but I provide a downloadable template sheet with more bat characters to sketch and draw yourself and assist your drawing skills, or print out onto thick card and practice watercolouring. 

You could apply the same process to other creatures you may find interesting. This is a light introduction into watercolour approaches. 


Tools & Process

  1.  Watercolour paper, mixed media paper or a thick white card is fine for this class. Just be aware that rubbing too much/ hard on a plain card surface might tear it slightly. 
  2. Elements : Animals you love. It doesn’t have to be a bat. If you are too freaked out by the idea of them. They are part of the natural world but so are any number of other fascinating creatures. Approach this class with what ever makes you comfortable. (Note) I will be creating other animal focused classes. 
  3. Colour Selection. Is it black and white? greens, blues, pinks? Ask at each completed stage. Think of contrast, organic circular shapes or geometric sharp edges. It is good to start out with five colours approx and mix within your selection. Feel free to pick your favourites.
