March 14 – Addren Doss presentation / demo
To me, aspen trees are beautiful no matter what the season. I love how the silvery bark reflects the light and the interesting textures and colors found on them. Let me take you for a walk in one of the many aspen groves I discovered this past summer in Wyoming. I’ll start with a monochromatic under painting in three values and build on top of that. I’ll show you how I work from a number of references including plein air pieces, photos, thumbnails, and small color studies to create the larger studio piece.
