Nocturnes: Painting Night Scenes (ONLINE) PT 605EN_ON
with Joseph Sweeney
Nocturne painting, as coined by James Abbott McNeill Whistler, depicts nighttime or low-light subjects, often with a characteristic dreamy or hazy quality. Join Joseph Sweeney to create a series of nocturne paintings, with reference to the works of Whistler, George Sotter, and other painters of night scenes. Topics include color mixing to capture the tonal quality and character of night, compositional fundamentals, and sound painting practices. Working from night subjects supplied by the instructor, learn how to paint from photo references in preparation for working outdoors. Instruction is geared towards oil, acrylic, and pastel, but experienced watercolorists are welcome.
