Fill Your Landscapes with Light Workshop in Oils or Acrylics with Michael Story

Oct 10th, 11th & 12th, 2017 

10:00 am - 5:00 pm with break for lunch

Master your landscape painting and join me for this 3-day workshop 
as we use underpainting and layering of color to simulate radiant 
light in our landscape paintings. The workshop begins with an I-Pad 
step-by-step presentation showing a progression of my 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 light, drama and mood to your work. 

Artists may also bring in one previously finished painting for critique.
