Their fluid, upward motion seems to invite us to draw them, yet they can be surprisingly difficult to capture. In this workshop you will look at how to bring trees to life on the page, using some of the great masters as inspiration. How does Bonnard use shorthand and texture to define individual species of tree in just pencil? How does Giacometti use energy and line to give each tree a sense of space and character?

Both days will be outside drawing from life on Brandon Hill, so you will need to be dressed in weather appropriate clothing with sensible footwear. Precise meeting point details will be sent to participants in advance.
