I borrowed this phrase from the recently deceased Canadian painter Robert Genn who believed that there is only so much we can learn about how to paint from the many fine instructors and resources available today. The true learning comes from going off on our own and doing it - Go to your room!

I have had the good fortune to take instruction from outstanding artists in Canada and the USA. I am now focusing on my own development ( Going to MY room!) and sharing what I have learned and continue to learn. I created this blog primarily for those attending my workshops to keep in touch and to further share as we grow together. If others are interested in following that would be great.

Enjoy the journey.

I made it! Carol Marine Workshop

I am here. Carol Marine workshop at  Whidbey Island Fine Art Studio in upper Washington State. Lovely little town. Workshops are held at a 4H building at the local fair grounds - great room and well organized. 

Off to a good start. Great demo, good discussion, good teacher, lots of one-on-one time  - looking forward to the week. Will keep you posted. 

My goal here is to improve my confidence using oils - in particular laying correct spots of colour.
