Regina Burchett Free Demo
Skies, Clouds and Storms
Feb. 23, 2019, 10:00 am -12:00 pm
Youth Hall, Cornwell Center, Charlotte, NC
Morning Program Demo: In my presentation, we discuss how to incorporate dramatic and realistic clouds into landscape paintings and also how to start creating abstract cloud paintings. During the demonstration, I paint portions of several different types of clouds to show how to create a believable sky by studying the light and using soft edges to “set” the clouds. In addition, we review how to maximize the use of cloud photos to increase the interest of paintings.
If you are staying for the afternoon workshop, please bring a bag lunch. Drinks and dessert will be provided.
