Master your landscape painting! Join South Carolina artist Michael Story for this four-day workshop as you use the sky and water as a dramatic design element in your painting’s composition. The workshop will begin with a presentation of Michael’s painting techniques from start to finish. You’ll begin your painting with an initial charcoal drawing, followed by color wash applied over the image.

Starting with shadow colors, you’ll begin blocking in your painting, then progress from dark to light to completion. Building final layers of color and avoiding muddy mixtures, you’ll achieve fresh, bright color while capturing depth, drama and mood in your work. He will demonstrate and provide photo reference to paint from, if desired, along with color exercises you may complete after the workshop.

Michael Story earned a BFA in Fine Art from the University of South Carolina in 1976. He later traveled to New York, studying pastel and oil painting under internationally known artist Daniel Greene. Today, he is an award-winning artist who regularly teaches pastel and oil painting. His paintings have been reproduced by major publishers and distributed worldwide.
