THE BEAUTY OF SKYSCAPE

Billowing clouds come in countless shapes, sizes, and various colors. Participants will work with photographs with low horizons giving a focus on how to handle different skies, including sunsets, stormy scenes, and beautiful thunderheads. Linda will provide several photographs and students are encouraged to bring photos of skies that they would like to paint. Students will learn to create skies with detailed color mixing lessons that gives the painting life, going beyond just copying a photograph. Special attention to values, composition and edges will be discussed along with several examples of clouds in progress. This workshop will include instructor demonstrations.

SCULPTING THE HUMAN FORM

FUNDAMENTALS OF DRAWING
WITH INSTRUCTORS FROM
Great drawing skills are the backbone of all great painting. This two-day class will focus first on drawing a still life and a human figure. Workshop and study will include:
- Study of the skull
- Light and shadow on the plains of the face
- Study of individual facial feature structure
- How to create strong portraiture composition/design with use of value massing
- Drawing people from life and from photo reference
Though this is a drawing class, integral knowledge will be gained to support and enrich skill towards masterful portrait painting. The class will include foundational studies that will be useful for beginning, intermediate and even advanced portrait artists if they feel that their foundational studies might have any gaps in the above mentioned areas.
