Before Easter I led a course on drawing trees in soft pastel at Norden Farm Centre for the Arts Maidenhead. Starting by looking at individual trees and small groups of trees we progressed to exploring the wood from within, trees in blossom, trees as part of a “Fauve” landscape and trees in a romantic or dramatic situation. Some of the work was very expressive and I hope I have managed to include at least one piece from each participant.
