04/10/2021      Art of Metamorphosis Part II

Andrea Hargreaves MPAGB, EFIAP/b, BPE3*

The Art of Metamorphosis II continues to follow Andrea's creative journey as she explains how the Valkyrie series came to life, how they inspired her to create Morghanna and the Raven Queens, and further still her new series of Dragon Watchers.

In this presentation Andrea shows us how she built her favourite characters and shows us why some images don't make the cut—but it's only a minor blip as Andrea shows us how, with a little thought and imagination, they can be reinvented to give them a new lease of life.

Beautiful images of still life using carefully controlled natural light; anyone can emulate what Andy achieves, even with the cheapest of kit, it's just a technique.

The presentation shows Andy's journey as a pro landscaper into how he developed his hobby of 'Still Life'.
