Painting Bark and Lichens in Gouache Workshop with Lucy Martin
Lucy Martin’s beautiful Heron Hall art exhibit “Microcosms: A Closer Look at Mushrooms and Lichen” ison display through August 29. Lucy’s artwork is all about close observation. The Laguna de Santa Rosa is full of wonderful lichens that abundantly repay a close look. You will find a whole world on an oak branch!
Join Lucy to learn about her painting technique. She uses gouache, which is similar to watercolor, but more opaque. You will learn some of the techniques Lucy uses to produce her very detailed paintings of bark, leaves, lichens, moss and oak galls. Enjoy a quiet, peaceful day in Heron Hall, surrounded by Lucy’s inspiring art exhibit and the native plant garden at the Laguna Environmental Center, to enhance your observation and painting skills. Suitable for adults and teens 14 years, and at least some drawing experience is helpful. A supply list will be sent upon registration.
