New Trish Burr Online Class
Isn't this the cutest little guy you have ever seen? Well, it's a new Trish Burr online class, and I've signed up to take it starting in September.
If you remember, I took her first online class, the Chinese Flower and absolutely loved it. Her instruction were extremely clear, the class materials packaged and printed beautifully, and her critiques honest and helpful. I definitely recommend taking an online class from her, as it is rather hard to get to South Africa or to Beating Around the Bush every 2-3 years to take classes from her in person.
I was wondering what a real Little Bee Eater actually looks like, so I searched and found the Wikipedia entry here. Trish's bird is a bit chubbier than the photos, but that may be the South African version. But other than that, Trish's rendering of the bird is just amazingly accurate.
This is the photo from the Wikipedia article of a bird in Entebbe, Uganda. Beautiful, isn't it?Although I think Trish's rendering of him has a bit more of an attitude, don't you agree? I will keep all of you posted on this project. I have the class notes and will receive the materials in the mail sometime this summer.
Trish designed two companion pieces to the Chinese Flower, which I have yet to do. Someday...
