    Regina Burchett Free Demo

    Skies, Clouds and Storms

    Feb. 23, 2019, 10:00 am -12:00 pm

    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.
