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?

Adults; Youth; Upper middle.

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.
