Skies can be 'just' a background, convey the atmosphere of a scene and portray the mood of the painter. As Marcel Proust said, 'a change in the weather is sufficient to recreate the world and ourselves'. This course is about painting weather in all its mercurial ways. You will study the qualities of light and colour during the day. You will paint the dawn and sunset, a blue sky, a sky-scape burdened with rain, a rainbow, the moon in owl light and many others that simply happen because of the way the paint works. There are also seasons to consider and how they reflect tone and colour. This course is for beginners as well as painters with some experience. All materials will be provided.
