Fall workshop "Capturing the Character of Trees"

  • Plein Air Painting 
  • Sat. & Sun., Sept. 12 & 13, 2015 • 9 am- 4 pm
  • $170 per artist • 12 artist limit

Last summer Richard Jordan had the pleasure to teach a plein air workshop at Pickle Street School Studio focusing on "Capturing the Character of Trees". It was well received and we have had requests to do the workshop again this year. 

Trees play an important role in landscape painting beyond the fact they are pretty. If painted correctly trees can add scale, create depth, direct the eye, suggest time and establish an emotional mood. 

 Painting trees with solid believable structure and coloration is the key to making them look grand and interesting. If the trees in your paintings lack a strong presence, I hope you will join me for this special 2 day workshop devoted to "Capturing the Character of Trees."

Here is a flier for "Capturing the Character of Trees" to be held at Pickle Street School Studio, Sept. 12 & 13, 2015. Space is limited to 12 artists. 

Please call or email Joy Richmond today to reserve your spot. 616-896-9090 • jrichmon@sbcglobal.net
