In this hands-on workshop, MarySue Schwab will demonstrate key approaches to painting native Indiana trees. Students will be instructed in multi-layered, wet-on-wet techniques using watercolor processes to create both subtle and dramatic tree formations. You will learn to use a mixture of warm and cool greens and how to juxtapose shadow and form. Students are encouraged to bring a reference such as a photo for their own piece. This workshop is open to students of all levels, and each will receive individual attention.
During the workshop, Julie Roberts from Canopy Bloomington will lead a short presentation on the importance of native trees in the landscape.
Fee: $95 for nonmembers, $60 for members
