Amanda Houston

March 18-20, 2023, 10AM – 5PM. This three-day workshop will go beyond the “how-to” steps of creating radiant sky paintings from photographs. It will explore the intuitive creative process while still covering the foundation of good design and composition. We will focus on a series of small-scale color sketches and finish with one larger piece. While Amanda will share how she approaches skies, this workshop is for you to explore your own mark-making and undergo a deeper self-discovery to define your own unique painting style. Learn what habits holds you back so your true voice can come out. Amanda will demonstrate in pastel but any medium is welcome.
