The spectacular but familiar subject of the tree is not always recognized as a dominant player in landscape scenery. It is more common for artists to feature trees at the edges of their canvas, sometimes as part of the background or foreground. Artist Natalia Andreeva will highlight the tree as the central element of her composition in this demo. In doing so, she demonstrates perspective, scale, season, and direction of light. The focus of the demo will be on color relationships, form, perspective, and various angles of composition.
This demonstration, “Leafy Prospects,” is part of Winter Park Paint Out. More information on the week-long event at winterparkpaintout.org.
