Discover the wonder and beauty of Nature’s Palette through playful experimentation. Trish’s newest Nature’s Palette paintings have evolved into a collection she calls “Forest Bathing” and this new class will introduce how she intertwines words with nature. Students will learn some of her newest techniques on how to create texture and pattern in my backgrounds. They will discover the glories of nature’s palette as they implement nature into pours of acrylic ink-like paint. Leaves, grass, twigs, plants, stencils, mark-making and collage will then be used in creative ways to design a painting. Elements of design and drawing will be focused on to create a work of art. Bring your imagination and your sense of adventure and leave your inhibitions at the door! Expand nature’s palette and learn mixed media techniques in a new and exciting way!
