Rain Clouds by Sheri Jones

Rain Clouds 
9x12 oil on ray mar canvas panel

When I finished painting in the rain I was still motivated to paint the rain clouds. I painted this in my dry, comfortable studio. I painted it with a palette knife and lots of colorful paint. This is available for purchase. $250.00

Palette Knife Workshop
At
Dutch Art Gallery

October 20, 2012
9:30-4:30
 Contact Pam Massar at Dutch Art Gallery to register at 214-348-7350.
Come Join me 

In this workshop we will explore the use of a palette knife when developing a landscape painting. I will guide each student in developing his or her own unique interpretation of nature. The goal is to learn how to edit the scene and grasp the essentials. We will focus on how to simplify the painting process by building forms with value while observing how to use color to affect intensity and contrast. Emphasis will be on learning to organize light and dark patterns and to see the landscape less literally and more as an exciting arrangement of shapes and colors. You will be encouraged to show excitement and emotions to bring your painting alive. Express yourself in a bold and colorful way. Sheri will share her insight into the way in which she interprets the Texas landscape. We will be painting from photographs of scenes from her plein air experiences. There will be demonstrations and plenty of individual attention.
Beginner to advanced-Class size limited to 10 students.

Wonderful dramatic rain clouds with blue sky showing through at the same time. Very Texas
