How to Paint Beautiful Skies and Clouds....Live Demo and Booklet


'Passing Clouds'           18x24       pastel       ©Karen Margulis

 I love wide open spaces. I am happiest when I can see the sky and see the landscape unfold in front of me. Driving across the wide open spaces of Texas and New Mexico on our way to the Plein Air Convention was such a treat. Marsha Savage and I enjoyed watching the sky as we drove. We had one full day of overcast but as we came into New Mexico the sky began to open up and the clouds were magnificent.  A photo taken from the car window was the inspiration for today's demo painting.

This week for my Sunday Studio time live Facebook demo I didn't narrate the painting but instead painted to music and I painted Large! This painting is 18x24. It was fun to have a chance to paint big and get into the zone!

If you are interested in learning more about painting beautiful clouds and skies have a look at my new PDF demo booklet. I do a similar demo and give a very detailed step by step description of the painting. This is my biggest booklet yet at 50 double pages and 109 photos! I include many bonus pages so it is like having a mini workshop with me. This booklet is $10 in my etsy shop.
