Angela Sung

Traditional Painting & Environment Design


We are excited to welcome Angela back to CDW Studios for her first masterclass with us since 2019!

In this 3 day workshop, Angela Sung will be guiding students on how to simplify painting through colors. We will be focusing on still life, landscape, and vehicle paintings during these sessions. Students are highly recommended to use gouache, however, digital media such as Procreate or Photoshop is also fine.

Each day will be broken up into two segments: a lecture component and then studying from life – We will make sure we practice what we learn in our daily lectures. Angela will be walking around during these sessions to give students critiques so it is highly recommended everyone paints along. We will be going to different locations to paint nearby the studio, so if you are working digitally, charge up those batteries!

These are some of the topics the masterclass will cover:

  • Composition and Framing
  • Colour Theory
  • Painting light and shadow
  • Gouache
  • Observing from life
  • Industry Q&A
  • Critiques and Portfolio Review

This masterclass is a unique opportunity to learn from one of the most talented artists working in the industry today.  See first hand how Angela uses Gouache and colour to inform her iconic work!
