Landscape Drawing

Regular price $900.00 $0.00

Starting September 19, 2022 

Landscape drawing is, in realty, the study of nature. 

The landscape  is only second to the human figure as a subject of artistic expression.

In this class I am taking a step by step approach to drawing landscapes, using a variety of tools and subjects in a logical process, demonstrating all of the many elements of nature which surrounds us in our everyday life.

Weekly lessons will include demonstrations on the fundamentals of drawing different types of trees and plants, leaves and  flowers, mountains, rocks, ground, sky, clouds, water, composition and ways to create space and atmosphere in your drawing. 

My approach to materials is keep it simple. The real tools are how we use them to describe and communicate what we see , composition being a major element in the process. All demonstration are from nature not from photographs.
