As we look at nature closely, we begin to see her “hidden” design of color combinations and intricacies of line, form and texture. This workshop is dedicated to paying homage to the time-honored tradition of the artistic study of nature -- only with a modern twist of close proximity. All natural subjects can be our muse including, rocks, leaves, water, bark, grass, flowers etc. Be ready to be astonished by unmitigated beauty and vast, visual design possibilities! Demonstration and critiques with lots of fun, learning, and painting time! Please bring close-up photos and/or work from life. All levels welcome.
Material Cost: None
