Painting Atmospheric Skies

Instructor: Patrick Kirwin

In this workshop, skies are studied and painted for accuracy and to create mood. In a landscape environment, the sky imbues the painting with a mood, be it bright, sunny day or a story, foreboding afternoon. The sky is a large part of a landscape as a character and as a surface area of a painting. Techniques for various cloud formations and colors for seasonal skies are emphasized. Painting demonstrations by the instructor shows techniques of brushwork and unusual tools and tricks for painting in acrylics. Oils or acrylics may be used in this class. Acrylic will be used in the instructor demos.
