DURANGO, COLORADO ~ Mastering the Painted Sky Workshop
Location: DURANGO, COLORADO
Dates: February 25 - 26, 2023; 10AM - 4PM each day
What artist hasn’t marveled at billowing thunderheads in a cobalt blue sky or a dramatic sunset just before the sun dips below the horizon and wanted to capture those moments on their canvas? This two-day studio workshop will help you reach that goal and bring your landscape paintings to the next level. We will be painting cloudy skies, clear blue skies, and sunsets and learning how each of them affects our choices when painting the landscape. Topics include an approach to color and values that will provide insight into how you can achieve luminosity and the effects of atmosphere and light in your paintings. Field studies, photographs, and sketches will be used as source material. Reference materials will be provided but students are encouraged to bring their own as well. Daily demonstrations will be in oil, but other media are welcome. This class is open to artists of all ability levels.
