"Mastering Skies & Reflections in Oil, Acrylic or Pastel"
August 26-29, 2021
 

Master your landscape painting and join South Carolina artist Michael Story for this four day workshop as we use the sky and water as a dramatic design element in our painting’s composition. You’’ll begin your painting with an initial charcoal drawing, followed by a color wash applied over the image. Starting with shadow colors, you’ll begin blocking in your painting, then progressing dark to light to completion. Building final layers of color and avoiding muddy mixtures, you’ll achieve fresh, bright color while capturing depth, drama and mood to your work. He will demonstrate and provide photo reference to paint from if desired along with color exercises you may complete after the workshop. For more information, visit michaelstory.com.
