Michael Story

Mastering Skies & Reflections

Jul 28 - Aug 3, 2019

Medium: Oil/Acrylic

Level: All Levels

5-Day Studio Class

Master your landscape painting and join South Carolina artist Michael Story for this five-day workshop as we use the sky and water as a dramatic design element in our painting's composition. The workshop will start with a step-by-step presentation showing a progression of Michael's painting techniques from start to finish. You’ll begin your painting with an initial charcoal drawing, followed by a color wash applied over the image. Starting with shadow colors, you'll begin blocking in your painting, then progressing dark to light to completion. Building final layers of color and avoiding muddy mixtures, you'll achieve fresh, bright color while capturing depth, drama and mood to your work.
