Sky in the Landscape / Seascape, with Lana Ballot
In this 3-day workshop we will explore the role of sky in a landscape and/or seascape - from providing us with compositional elements to setting the mood to taking center stage in a painting. We will explore how sky, the second most important light source, influences the colors of a scene.
We will practice using wet underpainting technique to express the luminosity of the sky, translucency and textures of the landscape and/or seascape.
Students can choose to paint from their own photos or from provided photo references.
All levels of experience are welcome, but some previous experience with pastels is necessary.
BONUS: ANATOMY of a WAVE
As an add-on, Lana will demo the anatomy of a wave.
