Working on a large, studio watercolor.

Atmospheric Landscapes

Creating atmospheric landscapes with a limited palette.

Online Workshop with Maria Coryell-Martin

Explore creating atmospheric landscapes with a limited palette in this two day workshop! I’ll be sharing techniques for painting minimal landscapes with dramatic skies, mist, and layered color. Spread over two days, we’ll have plenty of opportunity for practice and feedback. All levels welcome.

Day one will focus on color mixing and exploring mini-landscapes. On day two, we’ll work on composition, value, and variations in mood.

This workshop will take place via Zoom. I will send out the link to join the Zoom session a few days before the workshop, along with some images and notes for preparation. After our session, you will receive access to a recording for review, as well an invitation to a Facebook group for additional opportunities to connect.

I recommend having the following supplies:

  • Paper: you’ll want to use 140lb or heavier watercolor paper. I’ll be working on small pieces of Arches 140lb. cold-press watercolor paper, 4" x 6" and smaller. Please contact us if you need paper, I have limited packs available.
  • Watercolors: please feel free to paint with what you have! I’ll be painting with a combination of my Expeditionary Art Palette, and our Essential Colors Palette which includes six essential colors and is a great place to start if you are beginning.
  • Brushes: use what you have! I’ll demonstrate with travel and water brushes, which I like for their portability and convenience.
  • Extras: pencil, eraser, paper towel, old toothbrush (optional), spray bottle (optional).
