Luminous Cloudscapes

Thursday, March 21st - Saturday, March 23rd @ Artists’ Attic in Lexington, KY

Register here or through the form below.

A studio landscape workshop for artists working in oils. Each morning will feature a presentation, full demo, and exercises for students focusing on value & composition. Afternoons will be devoted to one-on-one instruction. Points of study will include:

  • Seeing as an artist: seeing shapes, value shifts, and color temperatures

  • Planning your painting: envisioning your painting, using varied reference material, honing value and design, doing color studies

  • Design: Cloud-heavy compositions allow for a lot of artistic license in design, so we’ll look at different types of directional movement that give a cloudscape dynamism.

  • Stages of studio painting: drawing, block-in, color mixing, approaches to working a larger painting, refining texture & edges, tools for self-critique

  • Experimentation: exercises you can do at home to continue your growth as an artist

One-on-one instruction will be individually tailored. Students are encouraged to email several cloudscape painting examples beforehand and list some specific things they would like to work on.

Attendance fee includes a 40-page workshop handbook for further study plus continental breakfast and coffee each day.

Cost: $395

Registration limited to 15 students. Registration is complete with a 50% deposit. You can pay in full upfront if you'd rather avoid sending a separate check later. Full tuition is due by January 31st, 2019. Full refunds will be issued up to February 28th in the event of a cancellation; after that, a 50% refund will be issued.

Scottsdale, AZ: Atmosphere in the Landscape

  • Scottsdale Artists' School (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Light and atmospheric forces act upon the landscape to create a story, and it’s up to you as the artist to decide how to tell it. Join award-winning artist Kathleen Hudson as she reveals how she infuses her landscapes with atmosphere. You will learn how to see subtle color and value shifts that give your paintings depth. You will also learn tools for effective self-critique so you can strengthen your own work at each stage of progress. Hudson will bring example of her preparatory sketches and color studies so you can thumb through those in person.

Each morning will feature a presentation and demonstration, and then exercises for students focusing on value and composition. Afternoons will be devoted to one-on-one instruction. Each student's studies during the first 3 days will lead to a finished (or at least near-finished!) studio landscape painting by the final day. Points of study will include:

  • Seeing as an artist: painting light rather than objects

  • Planning your painting: envisioning your painting, using varied reference material, honing value and design, doing color studies

  • Stages of studio painting: drawing, block-in, color mixing, approaches to working a larger painting, refining texture & edges, tools for self-critique

  • Experimentation: exercises you can do at home to continue your growth as an artist
