Event description

Description

Join Lucy Martin to learn about her painting technique using gouache, which is similar to watercolor, but more opaque. Gouache technique is quite different from regular watercolor technique. You will learn some of the techniques Lucy uses to produce her very detailed paintings of mushrooms, bark, leaves, lichens, moss and oak galls. Whether permitting leading up to the workshop, this class will focus on mushrooms and their surroundings, which could include dead leaves, bark, moss, twigs, and other things found around mushrooms. If dry weather prevents local mushrooms from fruiting, we will paint related scenes of the forest floor. Lucy will supply mushrooms and other subjects. Participants are welcome to go for a walk in the woods and find things that interest them to paint. Dead leaves, bark, and moss are especially recommended. Enjoy a quiet, peaceful day in Heron Hall 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. Questions? Email Anita@LagunaFoundation.org.

Lucy lives in Sonoma County, California. She is mainly self-taught, with some formal training including classes with Mary Jo Koch. She exhibits in the Sebastopol Gallery and Calabi Gallery, as well as annually in Art Trails, the juried Sonoma County Open Studio art tour. Her work was purchased for the Permanent Collection of the Special Collections and Archives Department at the McHenry Library at UCSC. She has exhibited in international shows of the American Society of Botanical Artists and solo shows at the Library at the San Francisco Botanical Garden. Her art exhibit focused on lichens was on display in Heron Hall during the summer of 2018. Visit her website at www.lucymartinart.com.
