Pastel 11 x 15 As usual the purplish reds are not quite as strong as they show here.

Re: Essentials of Painting Skies- Homework Week 1

There is something about a photograph that takes away feeling of a painting!

Alligator Lighthouse Florida Keys
As you can see I added the lighthouse. The color of the water is reflective of the color of the water here in the Keys.

Re: Essentials of Painting Skies- Homework Week 1

Johannes this is my homework done in pan pastels because I basically do portraits and still life in watercolor and am still not certain about doing skies and landscapes in this medium, whereas I love pan pastels cause I feel that it is like sculpting a painting. it's messier though and living in a small space I have to wait for warmer weather to spray.

Re: Essentials of Painting Skies- Homework Week 1

Like Hai (above) this was also VERY challenging for me in watercolor and the first time I have done a skyscape so all C + C are welcome and needed! Also I hesitate to post this because I'm not very pleased (that's an understatement!) I think it might have benefited by more value differentiation of the 3-4 main masses. Also I think the sky would be more effective if it were less 'complicated'. I think I got off to a bad start when my initial sky colour was too dark right from the beginning (JV warned us of this!) Also I wasn't sure about what colours (in wc) would be best. I used Cobalt Blue, Indian Red, New Gamboge, Viridian and Antwerp Blue. I am REALLY looking forward to seeing J. wc demos on Sat! Thanks JV for your review if you can squeeze this one in.

I am sky addicted and getting hooked on oils. I have no yellow so my palette is the same !

Re: Essentials of Painting Skies- Homework Week 1

I wish I could have spent a bit more time on this. There is a lot wrong with it but I think I managed to get the general idea. Thank you Jo for a fantastic tutorial.

Re: Essentials of Painting Skies- Homework Week 1

An attempt at the homework by a beginner. Oils on an 11 x 14 canvas panel. I tried to incorporate the 'golden nuggets' that I learned, and added sun shining through the clouds for interest, but I know it needs more work. I would like to learn to be more painterly...I have a lot to learn and welcome any / all advice. Thank you, see you in class on Saturday.
