Art Workshops – Trees
I feel very strongly about making painting trees easier – this area frightens a lot of people! I will show how to draw and paint trees as they are, living delicate and part of the light in which they grow. Landscape trees or closer up. Working on shapes to produce abstracted ideas as students require. At a workshop, I asked if anyone remembered ‘Music and Movement’ on the radio. One lady replied, ‘You are going to make us pretend to be a tree, aren’t you…..’ Well a bit I suppose, but just to feel that it is ‘in the air’, no need to start dancing round the hall!
