I had a busy but super fun weekend in Tomatin and Boat of Garten teaching some lovely people how to paint misty landscapes.
Luckily the weather was bright enough for a spot of outdoor painting too.
We used acrylics to build up the different layers of the scene – from sky to mountain to trees to loch – then picked up the airbrush to create clouds and mist and add to a sense of depth, or atmospheric perspective, if you want the arty word.
Everyone did really well. It was great to see people having fun while learning a new technique. I loved seeing the results. All the finished paintings looked brilliant.
Many thanks to Art in Strathdearn and the 1896 Gallery in Boat of Garten for asking me along. And best of luck to the latter, which is now open again and looking great after a wee refurbishment. And finally thanks to James Gordon at the 1896 Gallery for taking photos on Sunday.
