Learn exciting new techniques for painting dramatic skies from acclaimed artist/teacher David Dunlop in a new 4 program DVD.

Studio Workshop with David Dunlop  - Painting Skies DVD

The Emmy® Award winning team of artist and teacher David Dunlop and producer and director Connie Simmons thank you for looking at our new painting DVD project on Kickstarter, Painting Skies with David Dunlop.

This DVD is the first DVD in our series of workshops for landscape painters focusing on skies, water, gardens and foliage, Studio Workshop with David Dunlop.   We have already produced the programs, and your Kickstarter contribution will be applied to postproduction costs to complete the DVD:  the license fees for the images of the paintings included in the programs, editing and color correction costs, and costs to manufacture (master and replicate)  the DVD.  The Painting SkiesDVD should be available by the end of April, and we have included May as the target date just to make sure.  We will send it earlier if it is available.  This is also a great way to give a gift to a painter!

About the Painting Skies DVD

David gives several workshops around the countries of different elements of landscape painting and his Skies Workshop is enormously popular.  This Painting Skies DVD is intended for landscape painters interested in learning new information and different techniques for painting skies and expanding their painting skills and their background in art history.  

This Kickstarter Painting Skies DVD has 4 programs:  1) Jacob van Ruisdael Cloud Study (56 minute program), 2) J.M.W. Turner Cloud Study (58 minute program), 3) Skies in Motion Program (105 minute program), and 4) Luminous Skies with Diffused Light (34 minute program).  Each program will have two sections.  David will begin by discussing and diagramming the design and composition of several relevant paintings by a range of different artists, including Claude, van Ruisdael, Turner, Constable, and the Hudson River painters  - as well as contemporary painters.  Next, he will demonstrate how van Ruisdael and Turner painted their skies in several of their paintings, discussing every step of his painting process along the way.  He will paint an original painting in the Skies in Motion and Luminous Skies programs, showing how you can incorporate these techniques into your own unique style.

About David Dunlop DVDs

The first DVD series that David Dunlop and Connie Simmons produced was an award winning art instructional series for painters, Painting Landscapes with David Dunlop. (“Dunlop has an inspiring, informative and energetic teaching style, and shares his extensive knowledge of painting theory, history and methods.” “Engaging, funny and dynamic.”)   

The second series for painters as well as a general audience is the Emmy® and CINE Golden Eagle award winning PBS series Landscape Through Time with David Dunlop. (“A fascinating and inspirational look at how great artists created their works.” “An informative and smart series.”)  They are currently in preproduction for the Second Season of Landscapes Through Time.

David and Connie decided to create these art programs after she took a painting class with David.  Connie was inspired by David’s amazing ability to weave together art, art history, painting technique, philosophy, and science, including neurobiology.  They wanted to create programs for people who were not able to take a class with David.

So if you’re a painter, or if you want to be a painter, or if you have a friend who is a painter, we hope that you will help support our new Painting Skies with David Dunlop DVD project on Kickstarter.  

Thank you so much for taking a look at our Kickstarter Painting Skies DVD!
