Working with Weather: Summer Edition
For landscape painters, weather inspires joy and influences choice of imagery and aesthetic decision-making. Moisture in the air, for example, softens edges, affects colors, and influences mood. In this workshop we will hone technical skills for exploring those effects, including fog, different types of clouds, and walking rain. Students may also consider exploring powerful weather-related phenomena as the actual subject of a painting. These images could include cyclones, lightning, fires, dust storms, and waterspouts. Discussion will focus on rigorous compositional considerations, the many aspects of color (for one, we will be working with monochromatic, analogous, and complementary palettes) and how these formal decisions converge with subject matter to create mood.
