This class is for any artist struggling with making trees look realistic, mixing those greens, or anyone who wants to sharpen their observation skills. Robin will be sharing her tried and true tricks for making trees and other vegetation come to life in a painting. Whether you paint plein air, or from photos this class will help you improve your landscape paintings.

Robin will demonstrate her approach to tree painting within a landscape. Students will paint several different varieties of trees and learn what details describe realistic trees to the viewer. Color, patterns, leaf shapes and directional growth will all be discussed and practiced. Then, students will take their knowledge and paint a final landscape painting of their choice.

Many artists are frustrated when painting trees in a landscape or around architecture. Robin’s easy teaching style makes learning how to conquer painting them fun and less intimidating. She will be using oil paints, but students can bring whatever media they are comfortable with. If using a different paint or pastels, be sure to bring the colors suggested on the supply list.
