RESCHEDULED Focus on the Landscape Sky
w/ Liz Haywood Sullivan
3 day workshop
Friday, Saturday & Sunday - March 20, 21 & 22
NEW DATES October 23, 24 &25
The sky is the most emotional aspect of any landscape painting. It sets the mood, time of day and the attitude of the painting. In this studio workshop we will explore how to capture the character of the sky, from sunny and bright to moody with precipitation, from early day to brilliant evening. Work on techniques for clear skies and creating believable clouds. Each day will start with a demonstration and there will be plenty of daily individual instruction at your easel.
