Luminous Cloudscapes


  • Artists' Attic 401 W Main St, 4th Floor Lexington, KY 40507 USA (map)

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
