Enrol in Watercolour Painting - Big Skies, Clouds & Landscapes
Course Code: ARTS1665
This course is not suitable for beginners. Instruction is suitable for intermediate painters with a basic knowledge of materials and watercolour washes.
Setting the mood and adding movement in any 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: this will include underpainting for seasonal colour changes; achieving bright summer skies filled with warmth, contrast and sunlit cumulus clouds; wet-in-wet storm-swept skies, and dramatically lit vistas. 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, and colour handouts will be provided as take-home reference. Photos including elements such as distant farm buildings, trees, fields, and water interest will be available (or you may bring your own) for reference, with additional instruction relevant to these subjects as desired.
