"...only God can make a tree." (Joyce Gilmer).  Every landscape artist realizes the importance of being able to reproduce a believable tree, a bush, a flower, even grass.  This course offers the opportunity to replicate plants in a scene, from the structure of a tree anchored by roots, to texture of bark, to the lace canopy of leaves; and the natural world that surrounds it.  This course will focus upon how to light and shadow play upon the display of each plant in a landscape and upon specific plants inside a composition.  Using pencil, charcoal or pen, we will practice techniques to capture these images in your stetchbook- practice intended to transfer to other media of your choice- for realistic as well as abstract art.
