In this 2 day workshop you will learn to paint dramatic skies in combination with atmospheric landscapes, 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 atmospheric cloud and landscape paintings. At the end of the two days, you will leave with a finished piece.

Andy will supply specific reference photos, which will help you achieve the goal of mastering atmosphere in 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.
