Cloudscapes in Oils | Hobie Porter

Cloudscapes in Oils | Hobie Porter

This workshop focuses on how to paint clouds convincingly. A major aspect of the workshop covers brush-handling techniques to achieve those qualities that clouds so commonly emit, characterised by their intangibility, softness and lightness while ironically still adhering to a perception of volume and form.

What will I learn?

In order to mix specific colours, Hobie Porter separates his colour analysis into three components: hue, tonality & chromatic intensity. Hobie believes colour-mixing accuracy is one of the most crucial aspects of a successful painting and offers a straightforward strategy to greatly improve colour-mixing skills.

Who is this workshop suitable for?

This workshop is suitable for anyone who has basic knowledge of oil painting. Hobie will impart the right amount of information based on your skill level and experience.

What do I need to bring?

You are invited to bring a good quality printed photograph of a cloud / cloudscape as a reference for your painting on either a canvas or board. Try to ensure that the print has a good range of tonal contrast. If in doubt, bring a couple of photographs in to consult with Hobie.
