Abstracts in Nature and Wildlife, held online for 2021, hosted by: Common Ground on the Hill.
Departing from detailed realism but still observing nature, this class will offer opportunities to experiment. Starting from realism, loosing up to an Impressionist style using birds, animals, and nature. Looking at details in feathers, flowers, tree branches and bark, create abstract works in soft pastel, charcoal, or mixed mediums.
Demonstrations: abstract gesture, using black paper with color or lack of color (white), drawing/painting motion, up close, macro details create abstract images.
Students complete 3-4 images during this workshop. See Materials list on website under Traditions Week 1 class period 3 & 4.
