You've loved Andy's paintings of his foggy snowy scenes, and his misty watery seascapes. You've marveled at his ability to capture those moody landscapes and great atmospheric scenery. Now is your chance to learn his secrets!

In this 2-day workshop, you will learn how to paint maximum atmosphere! Andy will teach you what to put into the painting and - just as important - what to leave out. With a combination of lecture, demos and hands-on individualized teaching, Andy will show you his techniques, tips and tricks. He will guide you as you work on your own canvases over the two days, and you'll leave with a finished moody masterpiece of your very own!

**Students: Please base coat your canvases with a layer of equal parts Payne’s grey/cobalt blue/titanium white. If you are using oil please thin your color with gamsol. If using acrylic please thin with a little water. It is essential that your canvases are dry before start of class.

Acrylic or Oil paint:

  • Titanium White
  • Prussian blue
  • Payne’s Grey
  • Burnt umber
  • Raw umber
  • Yellow Ochre
  • Indian Red
  • Cerulean Blue
  • Any other colors you may have

NOTE: Oil painters will need odorless mineral spirits, such as gamsol, galkyd light (or other preferred glazing/drying medium). Please note, no stinky mediums will be allowed. Acrylic painters may wish to bring a retarder and glazing medium. 

Brushes (Andy prefers to use inexpensive synthetic long-handled brushes, such as white nylon):

  • One medium Flat or Bright brush, like#6 (long-handled, this will mean #6 will be about ½” wide)
  • Two Large Flat brushes for blending the background (about 1-2”)
  • Several small round brushes, #4-#0 (again, long-handled, not watercolor size brushes)
  • Plus any other brushes you might have.

  • Palette to mix paints on (could be a paper palette pad, a traditional palette or whatever you prefer)
  • Containers for your mediums and brush cleaners
  • Notebook and pens for note-taking
