Learn how to paint beautiful, dramatic skies with authentic light from the comfort of your home! In this class, we will discuss how to paint clouds, sunsets, overcast days, and much more! We’ll also cover many painting fundamentals and how to utilize them to make your skies dramatic and awe-inspiring!

Day one of the workshop will begin with a 30 minute lecture and slide presentation followed by a 90 minute demonstration by the instructor. Students are encouraged to ask questions during the lecture and demonstration. Day two of the course will begin with a 15-30 minute discussion. This will be followed by a 90 minute demonstration highlighting any questions students might have from the first day’s lesson.

Students will then be given a homework assignment of creating one sky painting either from life (en plein air) or from a photograph. Once they email a photo of the painting to Marc, he will record a video critique in Photoshop where he can make edits and give thorough feedback.

Four out of Five dentists agree that drawing is fundamental to healthy gums and successful paintings… or something like that. But much like teeth, our paintings should have a solid foundation, i.e. solid drawing. Too many sweets (I’m looking at you, colorist painters) and we start to run into issues.

In this course, we will discuss how to use line, shape, form, perspective, and many other elements of drawing to create successful, beautiful paintings!

Each session will begin with a 30 minute lecture and slide presentation followed by a 90 minute demonstration by the instructor. Students are encouraged to ask questions during the lecture or demonstration.

Students will then be given a homework assignment of creating one painting at the end of the workshop. These paintings should be emailed to Marc within the following week. Recorded video critiques will be emailed back to the students.

What is the “rule of thirds?” Why can’t my focal point be in the center of the canvas? Why are there so many stupid rules in painting, anyway? Let’s talk about it! The composition of a painting is where you, as the artist, can really play. While there are plenty of rules regarding composition, we will discuss how and when to break them like the painting mavericks we are.

Each session will begin with a 30 minute lecture and slide presentation followed by a 90 minute demonstration by the instructor. Students are encouraged to ask questions during the lecture or demonstration.

Students will then be given a homework assignment of creating one painting at the end of the workshop. These paintings should be emailed to Marc within the following week. Recorded video critiques will be emailed back to the students.
