Capturing the Character of Trees

  • Pickle Street School Studio 2980 134th Avenue Hopkins, MI, 49328 United States (map)

with Richard Jordan

  • Two day workshop: Wednesday, July 31 & Thursday, Aug. 1, 2019

  • 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. daily

  • $195.00

Trees are grand living things and we relate to them on an emotional level. As artists, we should feel something when we paint trees, yet often they are handled as props or filler. Whether they are the center of interest in your painting, or the supporting cast, how you paint trees can either elevate them as giants or leave them looking small and uninspired.

In this special workshop, Richard will demonstrate his approach to painting trees and how you can give them life and a believable presence in your work.
