Sunset Skies
February 9-16, 2023

Meg Bandarra Sky Painting

Pastels and skies are the perfect pairing of medium and subject. The unique luminescence of pastel pigment, coupled with medium's blendability, creates gorgeous sunsets.


In this two-week workshop participants will learn about cloud perspective, as well as the color and value relationships necessary to make convincing skies. Wet underpainting and blending techniques will also be taught.

This workshop includes demonstrations, lots of feedback during class, and a detailed critique of your painting by email. The demonstration portion of classes are recorded. The first recording is available for the week between classes, the last recording is available for one week after the workshop ends. Participants who cannot make the live zoom sessions are welcome to take this workshop as recording only. The workshop will use an instructor supplied photo; repeat students are welcome to use their own photo if they'd like.

Time Requirements Outside Of Class:

 Painting outside of class is not a requirement from week to week, but to get the most out of this workshop you may want to set aside a little time to review the recordings (you may also want to practice with pastels along with the recording). The recorded demonstrations are each available for one week, if students would like to paint along with the recorded demos, watching the recordings before they expire should be factored into the time commitment. Student's will be asked to email a picture of their work for review within one week of the workshop ending. This is optional, and paintings do not have to be finished to receive feedback. Please plan on sending images within one week's time  if you would like to receive feedback.

"Meg is an excellent teacher. I like the way workshops are done, including the email feedback given afterwards, it's very helpful. I look forward to taking online classes again in the future."

"I enjoyed the workshop very much and hope to take more online workshops with Meg. I learned a lot and the feedback is wonderful!"


"Taking a class from Meg is sitting at the feet of a master, one who shares all her secrets and techniques without covering over your own personal style. There's a wide gap between doing and teaching, Meg closes that with patience, enthusiasm, and specific, very helpful critiques. I'd recommend her well-planned and creative lessons to anyone wanting to learn and improve their artistic abilities."


"I took my first pastel class with Meg and totally enjoyed myself. The new techniques were fun and Meg was both encouraging and also offered gentle criticisms, which are so necessary in order to grow. I have decided to continue with pastel and hope to take more workshops with Meg soon. Thank You Meg!"


"This workshop was fantastic!"
