Capturing the Light Landscape Workshop in Oils or Acrylics with Michael Story

May 23rd, 24th, and 25th, 2017

10:00 am - 4:00 pm with break for lunch

Master your landscape painting and join Michael for this 3-day workshop as we use under painting 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 his 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.

Michael Story earned a BFA in Fine Art from the University of South Carolina in 1976. He later traveled to New York, studying pastel and oil painting under internationally know artist, Daniel Greene.
