Trees, glorious trees! From their gnarly trunks to their sweeping branches, trees can be majestic focal points or powerful backdrops in our paintings. In this 3-hour workshop, you will learn how to capture the essence of trees in your paintings by better understanding their structure, learning how to create the interplay of light and shadow, and practicing techniques to paint the tricky transition from summer greens to fall color and leafless branches.
In this hands-on painting workshop, Nelia will demonstrate a variety of techniques and principles in oil paint. However, with her experience in pastel, watercolor and gouache, Nelia can provide guidance in any medium. Be ready to experiment and paint-along in this fun, supportive environment.
