Painting Trees in All Seasons

Karen Philpott

Description: For an artist painting the Tennessee landscape one of the greatest elements you can capture are trees.  Here in the South trees captivate artists in every season with their soft spring auras, the lush greens of summer, their vivid fall foliage and the lovely long winter shadows. In this class students will explore how to accurately place trees in the landscape and paint them as they change throughout the year.

“You will learn to paint trees only by understanding them, their growth, their nature, their movement – and realizing that they are conscious living things. A tree seldom if ever encroaches upon the liberty of another tree. It never wastes its growth in unnecessary twistings.” (John F. Carlson)
