Discovering Clouds in Soft Pastel

I invite you to discover the joy of standing in front of breathtaking clouds and be able to translate what would have just been a fleeting moment in time into a painting, filled with emotion. There is nothing like it. The sky in a painting is the keeper of the light, which is the keeper of emotion. Through clouds, we can convey a depth of feeling. 

In this course, you will learn the foundations and a simplified approach I’ve developed for capturing clouds in soft pastel. By the end, you will have a greater understanding of how to paint clouds and be able to confidently put the techniques into practice in your own scenes. 

Don’t be surprised if you find yourself looking up more often and finding a sense of hope and peace in the process.

Everything included in this course was part of the Magic Makers Membership recorded during January 2024 – a deep dive into the world of clouds! Purchasing the month allows you to pick and choose the subjects you want to learn without the commitment of a membership. You will have access to all videos and tutorials for life. 

Included are:

$147 – Lifetime Access
