To celebrate the release of her latest title 'Trees of the West: An Artist's Guide' Molly Hashimoto invites the novice and the seasoned artist to create a watercolor painting inspired by this new guide.
Molly's beautiful watercolor and block print works are ubiquitous in our region and recognized the world around. She has numerous titles to her credit, with each book providing knowledge on technique and wisdom for nature. In 'Trees of the West' Molly focuses primarily on native trees, rather than cultivars, with a special interest in 45 major species found across the region, ranging from the stately Coast redwoods to the diminutive but distinctive Fishhook Barrel Cactus.
In her return to Seward Park, Molly will lead a hands-on watercolor exercise. Each participant in this free event will learn insights into watercolor mastery from Molly's exquisite technical skills and fine eye for color and form. We will be using the finest materials and tools from Molly's studio to create art to take home. Please join us for this unique opportunity to learn from a brilliant artist in a space where nature inspires the soul.
