Acrylic Jack Pine Painting Workshop
Tom Thomson made the Jack Pine famous around the world and his version hangs in the National Gallery of Canada. Let’s enjoy painting this marvelous, majestic tree and capture the lovely feeling that comes from looking at our own artwork.
You will sketch the outline of the tree and paint from the background towards the foreground.
This is suitable for beginner artists who love painting nature. The format will be step by step. You will receive handouts before the start of the Workshop.
