Apr. 24-25, Online
Dramatic, brooding, ominous, and powerful, stormy skies can be all of these; they're also a lot of fun to paint! Pastel's unique form of blendability and rich pigments create lovely weather effects and cloud structures for storm scenes. We'll kick off this workshop with timed mini painting exercises designed to explore a variety of storm structures. Then, we'll work on a larger piece to fully capture the dramatic color and cloud forms of a thunderstorm. Learn to use wet underpaintings, as well as blending and layering techniques to achieve a sense of atmosphere. Pastels and skies are the perfect pairing of medium and subject. Join me and learn to create beautiful storms.
Students will use instructor-supplied reference photos. This workshop includes demonstrations, lots of feedback during class and a detailed critique of your painting by email after class.
Saturday and Sunday, April 24 and 25
Online via Zoom
Limited to 6 participants to ensure individual attention for everyone.
All levels of pastel experience welcome.

"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!"
