Painting Water and Rocks – Peter John Reid

INPERSON – Demo Evening – Monday, May 2, 2022 – 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
INPERSON -2 Day Workshop – Saturday, May 28 and Sunday, May 29 – 9:30 am to 4:00 pm

The course will help dispel the belief that water is one of the hardest subjects to paint. You will learn to capture the varying energies of water – from the tranquil to the rushing flow of a cascade – by truly seeing the subject, the colours and the various techniques you can use. Mornings will be spent learning the ebb and flow of water while the afternoons will be spent working on your own projects with individual assistance.

Developing Strong Landscape Paintings – Barb Sohn

IN PERSON- 2 Day Workshop 
New dates: TBA

This is a two-day workshop designed for the serious beginner and intermediate painter who is interested in my approach to planning and interpreting landscape and water. What makes a strong painting?  The focus will be on simplification, composition, colour and light. 

We will begin with a review and discussion of the fundamentals of a strong painting, followed by an initial demonstration.
Demonstrations will be done in acrylic paints.  I will assist individuals in developing a painting from a reference photo that they supply.
On the second day, students will work with supervision, with demonstrations on specific points as needed.
If we do an eat-in lunch time, I can do a slide show of a collection of artists whom I like, with a discussion about the factors that make it a strong painting.
We will conclude on Sunday with a critique and general discussion.
