What we see or understand as the sky is nothing more than a part of the Earth’s atmosphere, which is a mixture of gaseous molecules, mostly nitrogen, a good part of oxygen and water vapor; in addition to other gases in less quantity and different suspended particles.

When daylight, sunrise, sunset, falls on the atmosphere and the materials that compose it, we can observe the most spectacular phenomena that nature can offer us.

Vicente García knows how to collect these impressions in landscapes full of life and expressiveness through watercolor on paper.

In this course, the author from La Mancha will show us all his experience performing different exercises that try to collect some of the most beautiful phenomena that can be seen in the sky, at different times, seasons and locations.

For almost 3 hours of videos they will offer us different exercises in which we can learn.

  • Materials, brushes, the paper, the color palette, other tools.
  • Glasses.
  • Working wet and dry.
  • Treatment of color and atmosphere to treat
    to understand how light works.
  • All this with easy and affordable explanations for all levels.
  • Work in large format
  • Representation of rain, fog, storms, a sunrise, a sunset…
