9:00 a.m. - Pam will start with a short history of the master paintings before guiding everyone through the time-honored practice of creating a "master copy" of one of the permanent collection works - one of the most effective and valuable modes of learning to paint.  You will be surrounded by many fine paintings depicting amazing skies and atmosphere by past and present Guild member artists for inspiration.

Day Two:
Apply what you learned from painting a "master copy" and create your own skyscape masterpiece! 


9:00 a.m. - Participants will continue to learn about composition, values, color, edges, brushwork and more. Everyone will be guided on how to apply these principles to their own work. Bring your most inspirational color skyscape photos or an iPad with photos as reference material.

12:00 p.m. - Lunch from the historic Hob Nob Corner (menu choice upon registration, lunch price included in workshop).

Afternoon - Instruction and painting.


Bring at least two canvases, 9" x 12" or larger if working in oil.

Paint in either oil or pastel. Bring high quality color landscape photos or Ipad/laptop with images of clouds, sunrise/sunsets, stormy skies or atmospheric conditions that depict the quality of light. Images may include land.  An additional supply list may be found on Pam's website under workshops www.pnewellart.com.
