If you’re a wildlife artist looking for inspiration, then a trip to Watatunga in Norfolk is a must.

The beautiful reserve is home to a variety of animals and dedicated to the conservation of endangered deer, antelope and birds and home to the most varied collection of deer and antelope in Europe, free to roam at their will, and their latest workshop with renowned wildlife artist Martin Gibbons will give you the opportunity to get up close and personal to your subjects before capturing them on canvas.

    Martin Gibbons is a highly skilled wildlife and landscape artist with over 30 years of experience painting wildlife. He is passionate about sharing his love of nature with others, and he’s excited to offer this unique workshop to budding artists of all levels.

    Martin will lead you on a trailer tour of the reserve, where you’ll have the opportunity to see a variety of the reserve’s wild animals up close. After the tour, you’ll have time to capture your subjects on canvas under the luxury stretch tent set against a stunning backdrop of the reserve’s lake.

    During the workshop, Martin will discuss his artistic techniques for capturing wildlife at its best, from choosing the right subject to capturing the details of its fur or feathers. He’ll also share his insights into the behaviour of wild animals, which will help you to bring your paintings to life.

    Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced artist, this workshop is a great opportunity to learn from one of the best in the business. You’ll also get to spend time in a beautiful natural setting, surrounded by wildlife.
