Capturing Skies | Hobie Porter

Capturing Skies | Hobie Porter

About this workshop

This workshop focuses on the importance of the sky in a painting to maximise its atmospheric effect. Sky is often thought of as a backdrop to a landscape subject and is consequentially valued less than the subject itself.

When a painter neglects any component of their painting, they leave a hole in their work and the result is usually poor. This workshop, therefore, treats the sky not as a mere backdrop, but as the main subject. A painting of a sky should be able to stand by itself.

We will spend the weekend learning how to get the most out of our skies.

What will I learn?

  • How to use a variety of oil painting materials and techniques to maximise the effects of clouds, gradations, blushes and blends
  • How to avoid “gluggy” over-painted skies and how to work with colour to excel in subtle colour shifts
  • How to sensitively utilise tonal contrasts to inject your painting with a heightened sense of atmosphere
