Visiting Artist: Painting Lichen and Moss with Linda Medved Lufkin


 Workshop title: Lichen and Moss Covered Branches

 Workshop description: The subtle colors in lichens and mosses on branches make an excellent subject for watercolor. Strengthen your observation, rendering, wet-in-wet and dry brush techniques; as well as your color-mixing skill while we focus on drawing lichens and moss accurately and creating a dynamic composition with emphasis placed on creating maximum dimension. You will be given a presentation to help you understand the botany of the lichen and moss subjects that you will be painting. This class will focus on expression of form, structure, and color. Additional information will be given on how and when to use Ox Gall, Lifting Aid and Gum Arabique to widen your watercolor skill set.
