For a great outdoor Paint Out with Peggy Burkosky AFCA
Sept 29 to 30
10 am to 4 pm
What a magical place to paint at Milner Gardens & Woodland in Qualicum Beach, especially in Autumn! Join me for two full days of indoor and outdoor workshop instruction and painting. The Milner Gardens & Woodlands is the perfect setting for a painting get-away. Ten acres of garden surround the heritage gabled house which includes features of a Ceylonese tea plantation house with winding paths of old growth Douglas firs and cedars framing breathtaking views of the Strait of Georgia. The garden lawns slope gently to meet a precipitous bluff which plunges to the beach below. Flora, fauna and architecture in this setting makes for great subject matter as we explore loose, painterly brushwork and study a solid overview on the principles of design.
Level: Beginner / Intermediate
This intensive workshop focuses on the fundamentals of Design Elements and Principles with handouts that are yours to keep and study. We will delve in to the ratio of paint and water mixtures and successful timing of paint to wet and/or dry paper. This is a great workshop for exploring the power of negative painting.
