How to Paint Sky, Mountains and Water

Western Canada offers dramatic skies, majestic mountains, and crystal clear lakes to capture in your painting.

In this beginner’s workshop you will learn how to paint:

  • Captivating sky, believable clouds
  • Master mountains and create realistic water, all elements you want when painting your landscapes or seascapes.

By learning some clever techniques you will actually complete your painting during this workshop that you can take home with you.

The class sizes are kept small, so you get the individual attention you deserve and you are encouraged to work at your own pace. Choose from sitting or standing with your own easel and professional lighting in the artist’s professional studio. Located in the heart of Wine Country, minutes away from Mission Hill Winery. Your instructor is professional artist Louise Lambert, known for her captivating landscapes and vineyard paintings in the Valley. You will want to bring some images to work with and an 11” by 14” canvas. If you have your own acrylic paints and brushes bring them along, otherwise, you can use student-quality paint at the studio.

Easy parking: on Braeburn Street, where you will see the black door to the studio, which will be open, follow the short path to the studio.

Covid protocols in place and due to this it is recommended that students bring their own supplies.
