2 Workshops in Vancouver, BC in April

A Still Life Laboratory 
Painting the Portrait from Life
I'll be teaching 2 workshops in Vancouver in April through the Federation of Canadian Artists.
The first is a 3-day "Still Life Laboratory"; an intensive workshop that focuses on setting up dramatic still life subjects and painting them in both a structured, logical way, and in a more intuitive, free manner. Held in North Vancouver, this promises to be an exciting and challenging workshop for both oil and acrylic painters. You'll learn a lot and work hard.  What could be better?

The second is a 1-day portrait workshop held in the FCA gallery on Granville Island. Working from a model, I'll show you how to capture the essence of a face without getting stuck in picky detail and overworking.  Portraits should be painted with big brushes, big marks, and aplomb.  You'll learn how to do just that!

Still Life Laboratory: April 4, 5 and 6

Painting the Portrait from Life: April 7

Both of these workshops sound like the exciting, challenging workshops we know you for, Ingrid!

Lucky people!

Thanks, Bobbi!
I looked it up and found that it's right in the middle of cherry blossom time. It's been years since I smelled and saw that. Can't wait!
