John Muir Laws: How to Draw a Forest

Share

January 2019 Nature Journal Club Workshop

Into the Woods! Just as you do not draw a tree by drawing a lot of leaves, you do not draw a forest by drawing a lot of trees. Learn how to suggest the feeling of a distant forest, including the skyline pattern, edge and texture. We will demonstrate techniques using pencil and watercolor. In addition, learn how to draw the view from within the forest as you look out through the trunks and get a feeling of the play of light and shadow, and the tangle of branches. A few simple principles and methods will help you draw what you see without getting lost in the trees or taking hours to complete so you can still make it to grandmother’s house and have time to sketch along the way.

All ages and experience levels are welcome. $20 suggested donation.

Bring your sketchbook and pencils.
