These in-person painting workshops will help artists develop a good understanding of how to plan and execute cloudscape paintings.
Since cloudscapes pose unique challenges, we’ll start the workshop by developing an understanding of clouds and how they behave.
We’ll begin the painting process with an underpainting that will be the foundation for your final piece. On top of this, we’ll start our process of layering color.
Throughout the workshop, I’ll share my step-by-step working methods, showing you how to achieve fresh, bright color in your cloudscapes, while avoiding muddy mixtures. I’ll also demonstrate the effects of hard and soft edges to create believable clouds.
We’ll also cover:
Artists may bring their own photos to work from, paint what I’m painting, or select from photos I’ll bring to class.
Space is limited so register early!
