Steve Hall Download Winter Trees The Wesson Way

 You know all those " How To " art books on your shelf , well how many of those exercises have you actually done ?   They are a wonderful way to practice old and new skills. Many classes I have taken incorporate 10-20 minute drills, that way you don't have that much time to ponder and think you just give it your best try and go on and do another. It is amazing how much you learn and improve after doing a few drills.  Peggi Kroll Roberts and Carole Marine routinely use these exercises in their classes and they are fabulous learning tools.  I have taken from both of them and learned so much.
I want to show you what I did last week. I took a workshop from Steve Hall back in September , he now has a computer  download you can get  from   Winter Trees The Wesson Way . I did this in about 15 or 20 minutes following along with my computer in front of my easel. What a fun exercise . I learned so much and love the spontaneity that comes from "Just Doing It "  and trying to beat the timer on my microwave in the kitchen.  Next time I will show you another one I did a variation of this without my computer just listening to music. Talk soon . Have a great day.


  1. I've always thought how much bare tree branches remind me of roots. I love your cloud trees.

    1. Now that you mention it I guess they do.

  2. Beautiful, soothing colors Diane.. nice work! : )

  3. Thanks Jacqueline but I can't take credit as I followed along with the download. If you happen to get it and give it a try I'd love if you sent me a photo of yours. It is really such good practice and a wonderful way to warm up for the day. Have a great day !
