Workshop: Anatomy of Trees for Artists

  • Gage Academy of Art 1501 10th Avenue East Seattle, WA, 98102 United States (map)

9:30 AM-4:30 P.M.
All Levels Welcome
Gage Capitol Hill

The more we understand about our subject, the more we know what to look for when drawing and painting from nature. Join me in looking carefully at the anatomy and structure of a variety of trees. We will discuss branching patterns, foreshortening, shadow patterns, how to represent bark and leaves, and how to represent trees both individually and in groups. You will learn to see the overall gesture of a tree from root to crown and discover the advantages of simplification with judicious use of detail.
