"Aerial perspective has nothing to do with line, but concerns tone and colors, by the delicate manipulation of which an artist can suggest infinite distance." — Walter J. Phillips (English-born Canadian painter and printmaker 1884-1963)

This workshop is suitable for all skill levels, and will address the importance of aerial perspective in creating dynamic 'moving' alla prima skies. As English painter, John Constable once said, "The sky is the source of light in Nature and it governs everything."

Lorwen 'Connie' Nagle, 'Looking Westward,' o/c

Check out the Sight & Insight podcast where David and Connie chat with art historian and writer Judy Curtis about all things Art. This is thinking outside the paintbox at its best!

One reproduces only that which is striking; that is to say, the necessary. Thus, one's recollections and inventions are liberated from the tyranny which nature exerts. ~ Edgar Degas
