The Birds of the Desert workshop was developed to help intuitively understand the nuances of tone in a mosaic. This type of process is paramount when creating realistic imagery. We use birds because they have a lot of the design elements that are illuminate in this type of creating. Designing in a portrait or macro version allows the participant to focus on nipping, fitting and color choice. We will focus on creating a "story card" to identify our tones and use a technique referred to as "shard". A variety of macro avian images that facilitate lesson are supplied. As well as all tiles to complete our images. Techniques easily transferrable and applied to pet portraiture or landscapes as well.
