Dramatic skies at sunset, or with high wind clouds, puffy cumulonimbus clouds, rain clouds etc., are often the reason that we are drawn to paint a scene. This demonstration will cover the techniques used to obtain those different types of cloud formations, and the colors associated with them. Paint along in watercolor with Alex Sharma as she demonstrates specific brush strokes, wet-on-wet, and mixing techniques to obtain dramatic results.

"Painting in a Blue Mood"
October 22, 2021
 

Blue is an iconic color often associated with water and the sky. Blue can also indicate “mood”—as in, tranquil, time of day, place, season, feelings, etc. Through the various subject matter, Alex will demonstrate how to use blue in all its many variations to convey mood. These variations include how to change blue with other colors, how to get blue to approach or recede to create distance, use of value to obtain impact, and how to use blue in an arbitrary way to create interest. Alex will demonstrate in watercolor; however, the methods and considerations are the same for all paint media. Come prepared to paint in your medium of choice.
