Learn To Paint Skies In Acrylic
3 week Short Course
Wednesdays 1st, 8th, 15th November 2023
Online (Zoom)
Learn to paint skies and clouds in acrylic with guidance from Tutor Bethany Y Milam. Working over three sessions you will paint three different skyscapes, a fine summer day, a stormy sky and a sunset. We will focus on painting clouds, weather and atmosphere, learning about colour theory, perspective and composition. You will be able to follow the live demonstrations step by step, exploring various painting techniques, asking questions and developing skills for future paintings. Participants will also have access to an online folder of resources, references and recordings.

Suitable for all abilities including beginners.

The sessions will last approximately two hours. There will be plenty of time to ask questions and I will make some time for individual feedback on your artwork at the end of the session (you may need to allow another 15 mins on class time if you would like feedback).

Sessions are recorded and a link will be emailed to participants. If you cannot make the workshop time/date you can still take part by catching up later with the recordings.

You will be emailed details to pay by PayPal.
