I love Vancouver in the springtime, so I'm happy to be heading there to teach 2 workshops in April. Hosted by the Federation of Canadian Artists, these will be a one-day figure painting workshop and a 2-day still life workshop. Both will be from life so I know that my students and I will have a grand time.
The descriptions are below, including an amazing quote by Cezanne (that man was a quotable painter), and you can register through the FCA website. I hope you'll join me for some great paint and balmy weather!
"The day is coming when a single carrot, freshly observed, will set off a revolution." -Cezanne
Explore the timeless genre of still life and discover its unique ability to improve your painting skills no matter what the subject. Unlike other genres, still life allows painters to isolate and manipulate the elements of picture making in an unhurried, thoughtful way. In this workshop students will learn to set up and paint a satisfying, contemporary still life; from composition to colour and paint application, from logical and methodical to intuitive and abstract. Spend the weekend taking risks, loosening up, exploring colour and pushing your brush to its limits.
*These workshops are appropriate for intermediate to advanced oil and acrylic painters. I'll demo in oils.
