Learning to Paint Skyscapes - September 2015

Painting by Pam 2015

The works of art shown in this post were created over a four week course called Learning to Paint Skyscapes.  I put together a course on skyscapes as I often get asked by aspiring artists and intermediate artists 'how do I paint clouds and skies?'  

The wonderful paintings on this page have been created by beginners and intermediate artists proving that empowering individuals with the correct tools and techniques can create beautiful works of art!

Thanks to the students for allowing me to share their work here and congratulations on the beautiful work! Thank you also to Farzeen who missed the photo session, but whose work is equally awesome.

Valle dei Templi - Sicily - September 2015

Last week I had the pleasure to visit the Valle dei Templi (Valley of Temples) in Agrigento, Sicily. A wonderful afternoon was spent walking around the ancient remains which include eight temples.  Of these my favourite and I think the most impressive is Concordia.  

The Temple of Concordia is one of the best preserved ancient temples in the world.  It was built in the 5th Century BC.

The beautiful view across the countryside from the Temple of Concordia.  If you get a chance to go to Sicily I recommend taking a day trip to Agrigento to the Valle Dei Templi.  Take a camera and sketchbook! 

Another great place to visit is the Galleria d'Arte Moderna di Palermo which is one of my favourite art galleries.

Best wishes
