In this 2-day workshop you will learn to paint dramatic landscapes in combination with awesome cloud formations, as only master-painter Andy Eccleshall can teach it!
Through demo and lecture, while he is working on a painting of his own, Andy will guide you step by step through the stages of creating these amazing landscape-and- cloud paintings that
we all love. Andy will supply specific reference photos, which will help you achieve the goal of mastering drama in your landscape. You are welcome to bring your own reference if you would
like to work on your own piece on the second day of class.
At the end of the two days, you will leave with a finished masterpiece of your very own.
