Kathleen Hudson: Luminous Cloudscapes Workshop
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.
