**Recommended materials below**
Join Alex Tolstoy to learn to paint trees with personality.
Many can paint what is obviously there: branches, leaves, details etc. but how about the quiet joy or mystery or majesty of a tree?
What will be painted with Alex are the simplified, usually abstract impressions of trees, showing a variety of shapes, moods, and groupings.
Reference paintings - 3 of the below will definitely be painted during the workshop, then more if time allows.
PAPER: Arches rough 140 lb natural white
PAINTS: Watercolours - oranges and reds, browns (sepia), indigo, ultramarine blue, burnt sienna, quinacridone gold, neutral tint, greens, blues, and anything else one can think of!

BRUSHES: 8 and 10 point rounds, mop, rigger (Black Velvet and Escoda brands are great)
