Catharine Gill, Focus on Line and Gesture
May 18 @ 9:30 am - 2:30 pm$85
Learn to capture not just the beauty of the trees along the Wenatchee River, but also their strength and wildness, in the mixed media of watercolor and pastel pencil.
In the first hour, we will go outside along the river and paths, and learn to see and incorporate the trees’ structure, gesture and volume in our drawings, noticing the roots, branches and shape and clusters of the foliage. Our focus will be on creating loose and gestural lines that describe the feeling of the trees. Once inside the studio we will create watercolor paintings from our line drawings, combining and complementing the two media of pastel pencil and paint.
There will be instructor demonstrations both inside and out, discussion on drawing and painting trees, and continual guidance in the classroom.
Registration is filtered through our Spring Bird Festival, this class is listed as F13A. It will show the Eventzilla festival registration for all trips- but you are in the right place!
