At first glance, the open working landscape known as the Pastoral Zone seems to be endless pastures and rolling fence lines that are punctuated by windbreaks, stockponds, and feedlots arrayed around a ranch core. It’s there, among nineteenth century redwood homes and barns that we will study the historic buildings surviving in this harsh landscape. During this three-day workshop students will draw several of the historic rural ranch buildings in some of the most scenic places in the park. Instruction and on location guidance will be provided in the use of composition, linear perspective, and value contrast. Several drawing media will be discussed and demonstrated including graphite pencil, pen and ink, and ink wash. Students are also welcome to bring watercolors to this class. All levels welcome. Accommodations included at the Historic Lifeboat Station.
