Service Description

Are you struggling with painting trees with your acrylics? Would you like some tips and techniques to use in your own work? You have come to the right place! In this in person class I will walk you through my method of painting the west coast evergreen tree. Whether it's a Fir, cedar, pine or hemlock I portray these trees in my art because I am surrounded by them in real life. What will I show you in this workshop? -How to start with an underpainting over a semi-detailed drawing (don't let that scare you) -Negative spaces, painting the sky around the tree -Cool and warm greens and where to put them -Light and shadow to sculpt the boughs -tree trunks with just enough detail -Keeping on track with the trunk -Branch flow -Plenty of art tidbits off the top of my head that just come to me as I demonstrate and wander the room. A Bonus PDF ahead of the class showing the difference between the evergreens I paint and how to recognize them outdoors. Just to get you in the zone. Level- Some acrylic painting experience necessary You will need your own supplies and a list will be sent to you upon signing up. There will be lots of substitutions you can use, my favourite saying “We can make that work!”. Note: if you would rather hold your seat via e-transfer please email me and I will enter you in manually. GST is included in the price online $260
