Luminous Skies


Luminous Skies

Plein air workshop focusing on capturing luminosity in your skies.  Mixing luscious grays, creating great cloud formation, design, and atmosphere, including tips for capturing vibrant light, will be demonstrated.  Use of palette knife and large brushes and even your fingers to express yourself will be the highlight of this exciting workshop on skies. The palette knife and brushes will be demonstrated for a loose, more expressive capture as well as a more traditional approach to painting clouds.
