Prescott believes he inherited his artistic skills from his Mother and Father who were both extremely talented. He attended Art College in Liverpool, where he became adept in oils, watercolors, pastels and graphite pencils.

In 1978, Prescott immigrated to the United States and settled in the San Bernardino Mountains in southern California. His neighbors were raccoons, black bears, cougars, big horn sheep, bobcats and golden eagles, to name a few. Prescott states, “It was Heaven!” It was Prescott’s insatiable interest in animals, their conservation and habitat that began his career as a wildlife artist.

Prescott has traveled extensively throughout the world, photographing, sketching and actually living with the animals that he depicts.  He does this to gain first-hand knowledge of his chosen subjects and their uniquely different habitats. In this workshop, Prescott will teach us what to look for when painting animals.  He will teach techniques to make the animals look life like in our paintings. 

Prescott’s original paintings have raised considerable money for worthy causes though out America and the British Isles. Prescott states, “It’s important to give something back, to preserving wild places on this earth, therefore ensuring ongoing habitats for the many different and unique creatures that inhabit this beautiful planet with us.”

July 16th: Painting Flowers with Mixed Media

This will surely be using your imagination, from beginning to end. Everyone’s piece will be something totally different. Isn’t that great?

Supplies: watercolor paper of any kind, canvas, canvas board, hardboard, etc.

Size: 8x10, 10x10, 12x12, or 11x14 (you will be working on two at the same time, so make sure you have 2 of whatever you choose.) Whatever you paint on, it needs to be Gessoed first, even if it says it’s gessoed, do it again.  You will need Acrylic paints including titanium white. The rest is optional but the more you have to play with the more fun you will have.

Additional Options: graphite pencil, white paint marker in 2-4mm, fluid acrylics, ink pen and speed ball ink in a fun color like teal green. You may also want to use Caran D’ache, other inks, other markers, micron pens. I suggest you bring some $1 bills in case your neighbor lets you borrow something cool and you want to compensate them.

I can’t wait to see the results. See you in class, bring your imaginations!
