“Nocturne painting is a term coined by James Abbott McNeill Whistler to describe a painting style that depicts scenes evocative of the night or subjects as they appear in a veil of light, in twilight, or in the absence of direct light. In a broader usage, the term has come to refer to any painting of a night scene.” (Wikipedia )
In this 2-day workshop with our beloved Andy Eccleshall, you’ll create your own nocturne painting! Moonlit skies and shining stars, soft blue hues and silvery highlights.
On Day One, we will all paint from the same reference image to get the hang of the restricted color palette and unique techniques for creating these moody compositions. On Day Two you will get the chance to create your own painting using the techniques you have learned from Day One. For Day Two, you can use your own reference or you can paint from Andy’s.
For the supply list, Andy recommends, “medium to small canvases, no larger than 24 x 30. Canvases should be prepared as suggested in the materials list and DRY BEFORE CLASS.”

Acrylic or Oil paint:
Notes for Oil painters:
- It will be important to use an alkyd drying medium, such as Galkyd Light, Solvent-free Galkyd, etc. No Liquin, please.
- Odorless mineral spirits, such as Gamsol.
- No stinky mediums are allowed.
Good quality synthetic brushes in "double sizes". (This means they usually have long handles and the sizes are generally twice as big as the short-handled brushes like those used in watercolor.)
Canvases (make sure all are prepped):
