Last week I attended the week long John Busby Seabird Drawing Course in Scotland joining regular artist tutors Darren Woodhead, Greg Poole, Kittie Jones and John Threlfall as a guest tutor.
The week was exceptional – absolutely fantastic locations, fine weather almost throughout, great company and some wonderful creative opportunities to be shared with the participants and tutors.
The course has a great history and has proved hugely successful over the past 25 years, firstly under the guidance of John Busby (1938-2015) and now run by Darren Woodhead and others.

The Bass Rock in the Firth of Forth now has the world’s largest colony of gannets with more than 150,000 birds on the rock. They breed at only a few localities: coastal cliffs and remote islands with cliffs, ledges and slopes – Scotland is home to around 60% of Europe’s gannets.
