SATURDAY JUNE 15TH 9:30-1:30 PAINTNG TREES FOR LANDSCAPE
This class will help you work on a few different ways of painting trees for landscape. Trees are a big part of these paintings and doing them well, and many times, with little effort and simplicity can “sell” the idea. In many of my paintings there are pines and hardwoods. I don’t focus on an specific pine per say, but the general form. The hardwoods also come in a variety of types. Oak, Ash, Birch, Maple and such. Unless we are asked to convey a certain tree in a piece perhaps as part of the home landscaping, our “symbolism” unlimited. It may only be the bark or trunk that is necessary for the trees identification. A birch tree is quiet obvious with it’s white bark. This is one tree we will work on. Another I find interesting is the willow with it long drooping branches. We don’t have any Spanish Moss trees here as they are typical in Florida.
What sorts of trees do you know? Can you find or bring in some photos of trees like the willow or birch? And, painting these same trees in the fall using the specific colors of the tree is the one way to identify one from the other. Did you know that the colors of the leaves in fall are the true colors for that tree? Wouldn’t it be something if we had the bright fall colors all the time?
See you Saturday. We will use 1/2 of quarter sheets for our exercises. No landscape, just the tree.
