Thursday, April 14 and 21

Join this class to learn how to paint a variety of trees in watercolor. We will briefly explore how to mix your own greens. Using wet in wet as well as wet on dry approach and lifting technique, we will focus on several different types of tries, including multiple variations of conifers and deciduous trees. We will explore painting single standing trees, trees in a group, distant trees, trees in middle ground as well as more detailed foreground trees. 100% cotton paper is highly recommended for wet in wet approach.
