Michael Story-Workshop in Oil or Pastel
My 2, 3, or 5-day workshops will help artists develop a complete understanding of how to plan and execute landscapes in oil or pastel with an emphasis on painting skies and water. All my working methods will be demonstrated and broken down into a step-by-step process, showing you how to achieve fresh, bright color in your landscapes, while avoiding muddy mixtures. Before beginning our paintings, various surfaces, the pros and cons of using photo reference, and the need for a strong composition and center of interest are all explained. Artists can bring their own photos to work from or paint using one of my references I'll bring to class. I'll reveal how hard and soft edges can add more depth and believability to your paintings. We'll begin the painting process with an initial charcoal drawing, which when finished is spray fixed, followed by an acrylic wash applied on top. (I will provide the acrylic). On top of this, we'll start our process of layering color, going dark to light to completion.
