About this workshop

This workshop will focus on how to inject and capture the mood of the subject, portraying atmospheric effects such as mist, rain and fog. Students will paint a variety of subjects, producing two paintings a day.

There will be lots of tips on how to avoid potential pitfalls. Learn how to understand the various stages of wetness of paper as well as paint consistency in creating these magical effects. Small studies and planning will guide the student as well as build confidence in their own work.

To see Chan in action, he has an online tutorial that is well worth watching!
