“Atmospheric Depth” Acrylic workshop SAC (Dec 2020)

foggy day

Misty mornings, hazy low-lying clouds and fog offer subtle, thick and wonderful atmosphere to a painting.  There are so many different moods to the sky above. Even though mega-dynamic billowing clouds have the allure of grandeur, it is equally important to be able to capture the subtlety of light through a veil of mist or fog.  One of the most beautiful subjects to paint in nature is the ever-changing sky. Sunsets, starry nights, lazy summer days, and storm fronts provide a lifetime of inspiration. This full-day acrylic workshop will focus on creating depth and atmosphere in a simple “sky-scape” (pictured above). Demo’s will be given throughout the day covering glazinglayering and color-mixing techniques. By using a limited color palette of only three (you heard right – three!) colors we will build transparent and opaque layers to ultimately capture the misty veil of a foggy day.

class 3All levels welcome!  This workshop is a great introduction to acrylic for the beginner.   More advanced artists can fine tune their skills and really push themselves.  The class environment is always open and supportive to whatever skill level you are at.

There will be a 1 hour meal break mid-workshop.

“Big Sky: Sunset/Sunrise” acrylic workshop SAC (Oct 2020)

One of the most beautiful subjects to paint in nature is the ever-changing sky. Sunsets, starry nights, lazy summer days, and storm fronts provide a lifetime of inspiration.

This acrylic workshop will focus on creating depth in a simple “sky-scape” (pictured above).  The emphasis of this Big Sky workshop will be the lighting effect of a sunrise or sunset.  Demo’s will be given throughout the day covering glazing, layering and color-mixing techniques. By using a limited color palette of only 4 colors we will build up transparent and opaque layers to ultimately capture the beautifully expressive “Wild Blue Yonder”.

All levels welcome!  This workshop is a great introduction to acrylic for the beginner.   More advanced artists can fine tune their skills and really push themselves.  The class environment is always open and supportive to whatever skill level you are at.
