In this 2-day workshop you will learn to paint the dramatic cloudscapes that have come to be this artist’s signature. You’ll get to practice and learn a series of techniques to help you capture some of the amazing cloud formations we see in the Pacific Northwest.
Andy will teach you through a series of “paint along” demonstrations on the first day. You’ll watch and practice as he builds the various formations, along with the lighting effects that add so much drama. To this end, Andy suggests that you bring several small canvas boards in addition to your canvases, so that you can practice along with Andy’s demos on Day 1.
Then on Day 2, with Andy's coaching you will paint your own canvas, putting into practice the techniques you learned on Day 1. You will work from references - your own photos and/or Andy’s. You will receive individualized attention and helpful instruction, with gentle suggestions as you create your own painting.
Andy is very familiar with both acrylics and oils, and you are welcome to paint in either one. Note: You can paint in either acrylics or oils. If you are going to use oils, it will be important to use a drying medium.
