"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."
