Drawing Trees with Dick Rauh

Most of you have heard me rave about Dick Rauh, his incredible talent, his generosity as a teacher and his contributions to the world of botanical art.  With the friendly prompting of my student Lynda a workshop has finally been arranged!

Saturday, June 6th from 10am to 3:30pm

$50.00 for the day, deadline for payment on May 23rd (no refunds)

Supply list will be posted a few weeks prior to the date.

Should be a wonderful day of sketching trees at Lasdon with the master!

Rain rain go away!

Looks like the weather is not going to allow a morning of drawing at the farm tomorrow. There will be another attempt to draw this coming Friday morning from 9-12.  Hoping for a some sunshine by the end of the week :O) Please email me at lauragould@mac.com if you plan on coming Friday.

Supplies for drawing on the farm….

Watercolor paper journal or pad.  Comfortable size to carry…and work on in you lap or holding in your hands.  If you want to participate in the art show at the end of the summer you may want to use a pad with removable pages.  If you are not going to play with watercolors than regular sketch journal or pad will be fine.

Micron fine tip pen (black) tip  o1, 02, 03 are good choices :0)  Click on chart for a clear image….

These supplies are available at local art stores and craft stores.

Bring water for drinking and a camp chair or camp stool for sitting.  There is a lovely picnic table under a large tree which is also a shady place to get out of the sun and draw :O)
