Painting Realistic Skies and Trees Workshop with Cristine Sundquist


Painting Realistic Skies and Trees Workshop with Cristine Sundquist

 So often in my workshops on landscape composition and color I am asked to teach an intensive class on the two things newer landscape artists struggle with the most: skies and trees.

On the first day we will focus on painting believable clouds, sunsets/sunrises and the color factors that lend to the realism. On the second day we will focus on several different types of trees and their structure. On the third day we will finish up, and have a group discussion/critique of our pieces. This is valuable time where we have “a-ha” moments and celebrate our progress!

Cris says, “When teaching workshops I like to do a short demo then go around from student to student to discuss each one’s individual questions and progress.”
