This is a course based at the Artist's studio focussing on trees; how to sketch and paint them and then use them as part of your watercolour or pastel painting.

Subjects introduced may include tonal values and composition, negative painting and colour mixing in watercolour or pastel. Students bring sketching materials and their preferred choice of painting medium. Individual advice is given on use of materials and watercolour or pastel skills.
