10:00 am – 4:00 pm

This workshop is all about trees, starting with  what to look for in your photos to create a good composition.   We will focus on the importance of the shapes and the values when starting your painting; creating a pleasing composition; blocking in the big graphic shapes; blocking in the shadows;  portraying  trees in the distance; dealing  with clusters of leaves and the colour of bark

On the first day I will be guiding everyone through a simple painting of trees , from start to finish. We will also be doing some colour studies and simple charts of greens. I will  be talking about what colours to use for shadow greens, sunlit greens and greens for distance.

The second day will be your choice of photo reference. I will have lots of photos for everyone to use if you wish.
