November 5: Acrylic: Hay Harvest on Wood.
Weathered wood can be an inspiring surface on which to paint. Employing the well-worn grain of reclaimed boards, and using tinted gesso with a simple colour palette, we will create this rural landscape of a field of round hay bales after harvest.
November 19: Watercolour Trees, part two.
Back in May of this year, we explored a number of tree painting techniques as we created misty, atmospheric, tree-filled landscape. In this workshop, we will continue with our tree "techniques" but this time, we will let colour lead the way. Using both brilliant and subtle Fall colours, along with brush work, and experiments with negative painting techniques, we will create a series of expressive, small, tree paintings.
