We started with a quick look at the colour wheel and the trees of van Gogh and Hockney.
After determining the type of tree to make we used artists quality, coloured pencils to bring them to life. Some trees were put into a context to give the drawing a narrative. Some had magic corners used on them to tweak composition. The lovely results are below.
Notice the broken fence panel in one - brilliant!
Lovely mark making everyone - well done!
Once finished, we headed off to Wetherspoons where we were joined by others, for our Christmas lunch. What an excellent way to spend a day - thank you everyone.
