Tutor Maggy Roberts sent us this superb illustration by one of her students Robyn Dreyer. Robyn said below…
I enjoy working with watercolour, it’s always a challenge as you never quite know how the water is going to roll or spread which gives you interesting results each time. I also love working with architect pens and sticking to black and white detailed drawings.
I am South African but live in the Okavango Delta, Botswana, and manage a safari lodge out here. I do a lot of drawings and paintings for our guests that come to stay which is great as I have lots of inspiration out here in the bush – lions, leopards, hyena, elephant and wild dog are just some of the animals I’m lucky enough to have wandering around outside my room! One day I hope to do some children’s books on the environment, conservation and sustainability….
We are looking forward to seeing lots more illustrations from Robyn. What a wonderful environment to be living in, surrounded by the incredible wildlife to gain inspiration from. We wish you luck with your next set of artwork!
