Join Mindy for an exploration on different ways to paint clouds. We'll be using a variety of techniques with brushes & exploring textured clouds with palette knives. Ranging from subtle skies to big popcorn clouds you'll find your way towards discovering your favorites!
Workshops are recorded for participants to review & download
Here is a list of suggestions to have with you for the workshop
A Canvas pad sketchbook or 4 or more workable prepped surfaces: Choose from canvases 8x10's or larger or primed boards. Alternatively, you can prime watercolor paper, (heavy weight 200lb or 400lb*is optimal) and make sure to do 1 coat of white gesso on 1 side before the session begins. Before class starts be sure to paint between 4 to 6 surfaces with a colored sky of your liking* Remember this is a workshop format so your learning new techniques for your toolbox. Therefore it's is a good opportunity to reuse old canvases! Prep your used canvas prior to class with 1 or 2 coats of white gesso.
Acrylic paints: All colors welcome however as a suggestion: Plenty of White, Blues, Purples, Yellows (light & warm / yellow ochre is good too), Reds (optional: Burnt Sienna, pinks)
A table top easel or Books to prop up your canvas
Brushes: Bigger Round brushes are great for cloud formations, having a variety of sizes can be useful. medium & small flat brush, 2 or more round brush with fine tip for details. Whatever brushes you have handy!
Palette knife: plastic, metal or both
Water Glass & Spray Bottle
Rag for cleaning brushes in between coats
Hair Dryer is handy (in case you need to speed up drying time)
A palette for your paints - A paper or plastic white plate works well
How ONLINE Classes work
To access the Online Platform you'll have to download ZOOM.US app to your phone, iPad, or computer. This is a FREE app and you only need the basic package.
(You'll see it says 40mins max. however that is if you were to host. So you'll still be able to join me for 2hr without an upgrade)
Once you've registered, create an account and I'll send you the link to join.
When you join the class, be sure to turn your microphone + video ON so I can make sure you can see & hear me. Once we get started you can change your video screen to face your canvas. If you prefer to mute your mic after this you can.
