Water reflects the sky in its varied moods, and depicting this harmony of sky and water can be a great challenge to painters. Reflections in water can be the essence of a pleasing and harmonious painting and when conveyed convincingly, they bring a painting to life. Harmony of water, sky, clouds, and reflections is essential to a strong composition and design in landscape and seascape painting.
In this class students will learn to paint the sky as the source of light and understand how the tone and mood of the sky influence the whole painting, especially the water below. Emphasis will be given to how value changes in the sky and water, and subtle changes in color and tone can portray convincing sky and clouds. Students will also focus on designing skies and water as primary elements in paintings and depicting a full range of sky tones and moods including foggy, misty days with subtle light breaking through, the warm glow of early morning light, or quintessential bright blue skies.
Any medium is welcome, and students will see demos in both oil and watercolor.
