Enrol in Watercolour Painting - Big Skies, Clouds & Landscapes
Course Code: ARTS1665
Please note: This course is not suitable for beginners. Instruction is suitable for intermediate painters with a basic knowledge of materials and watercolour washes.
Setting the tone in any realistic landscape painting is the sky - dramatic, often dynamic, and changing from season to season. Each day will focus on a different aspect of painting the sky including underpainting for seasonal colour changes, bright summer skies and sunlit cumulus clouds, wet-in-wet storm-swept skies and dramatic lighting. Step-by-step instruction in wet-on-dry and wet-in-wet techniques, lost edges, and colour mixing will guide you as you build painterly skies. Colour handouts will be provided for take-home reference. Landscape photos will be provided (you may also bring your own) for reference and include elements such as distant farm buildings, trees, fields and water interest. Additional instruction relevant to these subjects will be provided as desired.
