We’re gearing up for a great hands-on painting workshop right around the corner – this coming Sept 15, 16 17 at Phoenix Art Workshops in Richmond BC Canada and it’s not too late to contact these great folks to sign up. This weekend workshop will have us all prepared to usher in the great historical event – the Grand Prix of Art in Richmond BC Canada the following weekend Sept 23, 24.
My Grand Prix of Art experience this July in Qualicum Beach, hosted by The Old School House Arts Centre was el grande for sure – won an award, sold the plein-air painting at the event, was commissioned to do another one and last but not least I won a Phoenix Art Workshop brush! Now I’m ready-to-roll and looking forward to more painting in the streets.
The big focus of the Sept 15, 16, 17 workshop: Lighting and Mood in Street Scenes. Simplifying values, shapes and palette are the key ingredients to capturing the nostalgic scenes we encounter in our travels.
